"As an instrument in his hands, you have done a mighty work for the freedom of millions who have so long pined in the bondage our of land." (Bodenner 9) These are the words of abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison, who felt heavily relieved of the works Abraham Lincoln accomplished as president. No doubt, Abraham Lincoln 's act in abolishing slavery and the difficulties that he faced along the way are what made the lasting impression he has on the world today. Abraham Lincoln made presidential history by putting an effort in the act of abolishing slavery. In the midst of his term in office, Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, that was signed January 1, 1863.
Lincoln’s and Douglass’s views differed from Davis’s because they did not consider the slaves as a chattel. Lincoln declared slavery illegal in the Confederate States in the famous Emancipation Proclamation. There is a famous quote form Douglass: where justice is denied and where any one class is made to feel that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe. Also, their views differed from Lydia Maria Child’s. Lincoln and Douglass believed the Constitution should be a protection against, rather than a sanction for slavery.

Andrew Jackson is most famous for being considered the first "common man" to become president. He also made changes to the way the presidency was run. Prior to becoming president he was known as a war hero from the War of 1812. In Jackson’s early years he was said to have no formal education, but taught himself law and he became a successful lawyer. During his 1828 campaign his campaigners described him as a war hero who had been born poor and rose to success through his own hard work.
Even though the economy wasn 't going through rough times, Lincoln was struggling where he sold the store. He then began his political career in March. Although he had the power to obtain local popularity and could draw crowds of people, he lost his first campaign due to lack of education, powerful friends, and money. Later on Lincoln served as a captain of Illinois in the Black Hawk War, and he continued running in his campaign for the president election in August 6. On November 6th, 1860, he was elected as the 16th president of the United States, beating his opponents: Douglas, Breckinridge, and John Bell.
Uproar and protest bubbled over in the states after Scott’s failure to obtain his freedom. His case also fueled the North in their battle with the South, since the big topic of the century was “slavery”. They wanted justice for Dred Scott, to rightfully place his ownership in his own hands, to grant him the freedom to live however he pleased and to not have to walk in shackles. Any human should have that basic right, as it says in the constitution. This landmark of a case stood as a breaking point for social reform; motivation to stop the discrimination that ran throughout the country.
The only person who really wants to embrace the black culture that Asagai professes is Beneatha and even she has misconceptions of what Nigerian culture truly is. This shows that the culture of the blacks’ ancestry has been forgotten and has not been taught. Overall Asagai is displeased with the assimilation in America at this time. He wishes that the black community of America embraced their heritage rather than discard
I would think using the word “racist” when discussing the events from the 1860s and the Civil War would be appropriate. Quite frankly, there is almost no way not to use it, It was a major contradicting issue back then. How could someone state, “God himself has made them usefulness as slaves, and requires us to employ them as such,” and “Our Heavenly Father has made us to rule, and the Negroes to serve,” (Pictures of Slavery and Anti-Slavery: Advantages of Negro Slavery and the Benefits of Negro Freedom Morally, Socially, and Politically by John Bell Robinson) and it not be considered racist. This is a prime example of someone judging and stereotyping a human being just because their skin is a different color. Abraham Lincoln even documented
Johnson conveys the narrator to distinctly differentiate the two cultures which he belongs to, but there is an analysis of the mistreatment of race. “I do not see how a people that can find in its conscience any excuse whatever for slowly burning to death a human being, or to tolerate such an act, can be entrusted with the salvation of a race” (98). Johnson uses the word “human being” and excludes the detail of race because he may be insinuating injustices reach beyond skin color. The opinionated position of the narrator develops into a slight understanding of humanity, because Johnson attempts to explain that prejudices during the time setting were unpreventable. The lack of humanity within the era in which the story is set can be paralleled to the injustices of humanity which still occur in present time.

Even though George Washington met all the requirements to be the best antebellum president. Andrew Jackson and Thomas Jefferson performed exceptional during their presidency in office. Thomas Jefferson was the founding father of the Declaration of Independence. He economically managed the U.S by cutting the budget of the Navy and Army investments,cut the tax off whiskey in unpopular areas and decreased debt nationally. Everything Jefferson planned to do, he made sure it happened.He even aimed and tried to establish a more perfect union by sending his men to fight off the Barbary pirates who were harassing the U.S commerce.”He also sent a naval squadron to fight the Barbary pirates, who were harassing American commerce in the Mediterranean” (Frank Freidel).
For the sake of the country and its union, Americans needed to pick a side. The division put the foundation of the country in question. For Lincoln, this was an absolutely abhorrent idea. He believed that the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence should be held to the highest of standards yet, some individuals were undermining its true message when they argued for the expansion of slavery. Regardless of whose side the country decided to officially take, to Lincoln,
