Most people would give up after the first time but he had faith he would get elected. It was because of Lincoln that America won the civil war. He knew what he could do for his country and he tried his best.
Being one of the few faces found on Mount Rushmore he has earned his right to be remembered throughout history. He was a man that would not back down for anything.

Ben Franklin was an influential man both in his endeavors to make the United States great and to better mimic the behaviors of a morally perfect person. Maybe his greatest achievement was creating the thirteen virtues of which to follow be a righteous human being and his plan to use them.

Franklin’s ideals are relevant in today’s world because no matter where you came from, where you are, or who you’re with, all people must be determined to be the best they can be. The lessons of Benjamin Franklin; to remember where you came from, where you are going, and who is with you; are monumentally important in this day and age because they are the fundamentals to achieving goals.

He has been made to even love his leader.
Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson out of all of these presidents i think that Lincoln is the strongest because not only did he keep the nation from seperating and falling apart during the civil war but he outlawed slavery 2 of the biggest mile achievements and milestones for independence and american history. One of the reason lincoln was the strongest president out of these 3 presidents was because as a president he went through the most of all of them" it was Lincoln 's leadership, his commitment to values, and his strong moral fiber that made it possible for America to find its way through the Civil War."

He was a man who loved america, and not only did he love america, but he loved the people of america. He proves his love for america by repeating freedom numerous times in his speech at Moscow State University.
Of all the great men over the ages there are some who rose above them all. One of them, the embodiment of the American spirit and nation, was George Washington. As I have heard, throughout my various classes, of the very humble man who thought himself not worthy to lead the Continental Army yet was the best fit for the nation of puzzle pieces. This great man knew many secrets men still desire to know to this day. He lived actively and happily and understood well the concept that, “it is far better to be alone, than to be in bad company”.
