Transcript of The Civil War Project
1809., and he died April 15Th 1865
Abe Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address, and it said,"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." #1) Thanks to Abe's long limbs he was an accomplished wrestler as a young man. Defeated only once in approximately 300 matches, Lincoln reportedly talked a little smack in the ring. According to Carl Sandburg’s biography of Lincoln, Honest Abe once challenged an entire crowd of onlookers after dispatching an opponent: “I’m the big buck of this lick. If any of you want to try it, come on and whet your horns.” There were no takers. Lincoln’s grappling exploits earned him an “Outstanding American” honor in the National. Wrestling Hall of Fame. Made By: Anastasia Winstead Technically, the southern states wanted the right to secede (withdraw) from the Union (United States) When slavery was happened many Southerners did not believe that their plantations could continue to go on, so they decided that they did not need to belong to the United States, and decided to be separate. While the problem was slavery, it was actually about more than that. It was about the rights of the states to make their own laws and the right of the Federal Government to enforce laws imposed upon the states. The North states were also selling cotton-goods to Southern states at outrageous costs, this angered the South since all cotton was from Southern states. What was the Civil War really about?

The Confederacy had managed to secure victory time and time again against the Union on Confederate soil. The Confederate troops were more professional than Union troops and, even though they didn't have as many factories or railroads, being on the defensive is usually simpler than being on the offensive. Three days, July 1 through July 3, 1863 The Union was able to defeat the Confederate group and because of this the Union was able to gain control of the political clout of the confederates. The Union was also able to lead the army of General Lee. The victors in the Battle of Gettysburg got the power to rule all of the United States.
