James. M Pherson really knows his facts about president Abraham Lincoln. He focused more on Lincoln’s efforts to win the war instead of the other political things he accomplished during his presidency. Lincoln was a great commander-in-chief because he attempted to run the war and also maintain political stability at the same time. This was impressive because although he had no military experience, he was persistent in provoking his commanders to stay active and to always strive for victory.

President K. Polk being a fair and a smart man had many successes including the promotion of the Manifest Destiny’s policies. One of which including the negotiation possession of the Oregon Territory from the British.

Andrew Jackson was a good, but busy man. My opinion that he is good is because he helped the people grow and he supported them. He was winning battles with them, he set the people free of debt, and he was a good administrator of the public business. He had to go through so much, but everything he did as president was for the country. Jackson led 5,000 soldiers to an unexpected victory over the British in the Battle of New Orleans, this was the last major engagement of the War of 1812.
He was an aristocrat and became a lawyer. He wasn’t born as a great leader, he would become one. He was a War Hero in 1812. He was supported by the Democratic Republicans. As President, he utilized the system and scheduled appointment based on party loyalties.
Over hundreds of years America has had many presidents, some able to complete the tasks at hand, but many were not worthy of leading this nation.

Abraham Lincoln, "proved to be a shrewd military strategist and a savvy leader during what became the costliest conflict ever fought on American soil."

Being a good leader does not necessarily mean shining in the spotlight. Some of the most revolutionary and successful leaders are the ones who worked the lights. Self-awareness, self-direction, vision, ability to motivate, and social awareness are the characteristics of a good leader according to SIY Leadership Institute (SIYLI). There have been many accomplished and renowned leaders in America since (and before) the 1770’s, ones whose names are universally known and others who are unfamiliar. Of the latter is Alexander Hamilton, who showed potential since the minute he was put on earth, for no matter what obstacles were thrown in his way he forged ahead and never threw away his shot.
