Lincoln was born into poverty in a log cabin in Kentucky and was raised on the frontier, primarily in Indiana. He was self-educated and became a lawyer, Whig Party leader, Illinois state legislator, and U.S. Congressman from Illinois. In 1849, he returned to his law practice but became vexed by the opening of additional lands to slavery as a result of the Kansas–Nebraska Act of 1854. He reentered politics in 1854, becoming a leader in the new Republican Party, and he reached a national audience in the 1858 Senate campaign debates against Stephen Douglas. Lincoln ran for President in 1860, sweeping the North to gain victory. Pro-slavery elements in the South viewed his election as a threat to slavery, and Southern states began seceding from the Union. During this time the newly formed Confederate States of America began seizing federal military bases in the south. Just over one month after Lincoln assumed the presidency, the Confederate States attacked Fort Sumter, a U.S. fort in South Carolina. Following the bombardment, Lincoln mobilized forces to suppress the rebellion and restore the Union.
that story, of course, contains more lies than truth. from what i have learned about the bullshit we are swimming in, i can probably confidently say there was a guy named abe lincoln. the rest of it is highly suspect. it was tariffs, not slavery, that the war was over. also, the north fired the first shots and drew the first blood.
basically the civil war was over raping and pillaging the south (which was wealthy) the fast way or the slow way. the north chose the fast way. slavery was a totally unrelated issue that just happened to be going on at the same time. it was not a big issue in the war then and it has only been a political football ever since, not a fact of any substance.
abe lincoln was a tyrant and a racist extraordinaire. dumb people think the lincolns fled to the frontier to get away from slavery. lololololololololol it was to get away from the black people that came with slavery. after the war, lincoln had plans to ship all blacks back to africa. no joke. lincoln was a monster.
like my daughter used to say, dont believe everything you think.
