How did Abe Lincoln influence the world to end slavery?

taylorvincent@rocketmail.com asked:


i already asked this question, but worded it weird.

i have to write a paragraph on why abe lincoln is one of the most important people in history, and the only possible way i can think of how that could apply to him, is if he affected the entire world.= through the emancipation proclamation

But, if you can think of another reason, that could be really helpful

    Lincoln did not have slaves. His wife Mary never did either. They both were very strong in the belief that slavery was evil.

    I dont know if he HAD slaves, but i know his wife did. He made her get rid of them, making them sell slaves, it was very hard for her to do things without slaves helping.

    The Emancipation Proclamation actually did nothing; it applied only to territory Lincoln no longer had power over. Northern states with slaves kept them until the 13th amendment. Additionally, the US was one of the last Western countries to outlaw slavery, so what impact he did have on slavery (which, due to his strategy of making slavery the defining issue of the Civil War, he did) had little impact on the world. The CSA’s slavery was actually a major reason that Britain (which otherwise favored the South) did not recognize them).

    What did make him important was that he kept the US together, and, since the US became the most powerful nation in the world, that obviously impacted the world.

    *Note: when I say the Emancipation Proclamation did nothing, I mean it had no effect on the legality of slavery; it did have impacts in other ways.

    Lincoln was always against slavery he hated it. He was also against it’s spread. He felt that it would eventually die out on it’s own. He was aware that it was constitutionally protected. However, in issuing the Emancipation Proclamation, he side-stepped that issue and effectively killed slavery. Because of the E.P., the 13th Amendment would come to pass-officially ending slavery in the United States.
