I think Pres. Lincoln was more hated then Pres. Bush. Remember the civil war, anyone? Of course, teacher says he was the greatest president to ever
serve, and you all beleive teacher, but he was a tyrant. Most of the bigger things he is known for today were illegal. I am not speaking of the
abolition of slavery (and he didn't do it single-handedly, FYI) of course I am glad there is no longer state-sponsored racism (unless, of course, you
count many of the gun laws and drug laws as racist.) No, he planted the roots for the decline of the republic; he illegally forced his rule on others.
The President Lincoln we know today is not the same one known in his day. History is written by the winners. In his day, he was a much hated man, as
the blood of our country men can attest to.
