The very best president of the united states Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president and one of the most accomplished for his achievement in aboloshing slavery. Lincoln is giving his Inaugural address speech, reflecting about the civil war and how we were able to overcome all the violence and tragedy that came with it. Articulated by Lincoln about slaves and how they were a major sin that we the people committed, slaves were the cause of the civil war and neither side could come up with an agreement to end it. In the end, both sides prayed to God to save them, but none got that wish. The entire speech purpose is effective in convincing the audience that after the war is over we need to come together and unify the north and the south, Lincoln's purpose is effective in retelling to the audience how the civil war was a disaster and petty.
His accounts of the complex events leading to the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation are particularly lucid. Oakes argues that Lincoln had surreptitiously delivered the death blow to slavery by the end of 1861. As to Douglass, I learned a great deal from Oakes's discussion of his three autobiographies, written in 1845, 1855, and 1881 (edited, 1891) and of how these works document the change of Douglass from reformer to an instance of the American success story. Oakes also describes well and detail a chilling meeting between Douglass and other African American leaders and President Andrew Johnson in which Douglass unsuccessfully tried to persuade Johnson to extend the right to vote to African

Dew uses letters and speeches of the secession commissioners to assess their effect on sparkling resent and bitter emotions by the south to foster the secession movement. Dew’s central thesis is that the secessionist movement was largely motivated by racial inequality and the need to keep that as the status quo. Dew writes that a lot of the secession leaders used that as a reason for wanting the secession. He writes that, “Alabama's Leroy Pope Walker summarized that Republican rule would cost southerners first, ‘our property,’ ‘then our liberties,’ and finally ‘the sacred purity of our daughters’ (Dew, 80).
“Four score and seven years ago our fathers...”, (464) Lincoln was asking his audience to go back and discover that the country's foundation was not the constitution nor the election of the first president, George Washington, but the signing of the Declaration of Independance in 1776 by our founding fathers was the starting point of the nation.tg The rhetorical device repetition is also used in Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. We already know that his speech is being delivered at the memorial with thousands of people in attendance. When Lincoln says, “.. of the people, by the people, for the people…” (465), we can conclude that his is referring to the people that are in attendance of listening to his momentous speech. Lincoln is telling his fellow citizens that freedom is coming and “the people” will be granted all rights of it.

But a person like John Hancock, a limited amount of the population in the Unites States knows about him. Even though he is not remembered, John Hancock is one of the founding fathers and played a pivotal role that changed the fate of our nation.
Andrew Jackson was a poor Carolinian orphan who continually served his country despite the adversity he faced. Under his control the US won two amazing battles, the battle of New Orleans and the battle of horseshoe bend, providing the United states with land and international recognition. With his patriotic history Jackson won the election of 1829 and due to his love of his country worked to keep the union together despite the driving force of issues such as nullification. In 1832 the South Carolina legislature held a convention declaring the tariffs of 1928 and 1932 utterly null and void.
