Confederate Victories Union victories Civil war Strategy Leadership Results Mehdi Charioui Mind Map Lincoln Ulysses S. Grant Robert E. Lee Lincoln's main ambition during the war was simply keeping the Union together. This was above all else to him. You can see this fact by noticing that nearly all the border states that stayed in the North (especially Kentucky, Maryland, and Missouri) were allowed to keep their slaves because he knew they would also secede if he abolished slavery in ALL the states. This is why he only abolished slavery in the rebelling states. When generals didn't work out the North went through several before finding Grant, he would replace them quickly because he knew they couldn't slack any or else the Union might fall apart. . he was a great leader no matter what he was persistent and stuck to his overall plan to preserve the Union no matter what.

But the attempt failed with the victory of the Confederates led by Gen. Robert E. Lee. It was considered Lee's perfect battle. North South Anaconda Plan:

The end result of the Civil War was that it was afterwards written into law that no state can leave the Union; the South was virtually destroyed; the vast majority of slaves were freed (those who were in the Confederate states); afterwards blacks were awarded citizenship. Grant was the only Union general who could equal southern general Robert E. Lee.
