Debate Rounds (5)
Best of luck and let the best debater win.
Declared War on a nation that wanted freedom from the USA
Declared war on a Nation that wanted peace (that's considered today as terrorism)
Imprisoned and killed Maryland Legislators and secessionist to stop the state to secede
He suspended the writ of habeas corpus without the consent of Congress (as required by the Constitution).
Blocked of Confederate ports, without a declaration of war
He forced Generals to burn down cites and states.
around the end of the war he forced the Union Army to kill prisoners
These are why I think Abraham Lincoln was not the best president as people say. You can start to debate with anyone listed.
Website 1- In the war he kept going a persevered even though he had to carry one generals who weren't ready to fight, assassination threats, biking among Cabinet members, a lot of people life lost, and opposition from groups such as the Copperheads, you would not be able to do that, it must have been so hard for him. If he would have not have gone to war to free the slaves than there would be slaves in this time or another person would have fought back. What is he supposed to do sit back and do nothing.

Since my opponent went first he did not get a chance to Rebuttal me so I will not do that to him. Just want it to be fair.

In website #1 you had said that if he didn't go to war slavery would still exist.
Slavery still exist in the United states during the Civil War. The government still let states keep slavery. Slavery would also die off too.
