April 1865 the South states surrendered and the war was over. Some days later Abraham Lincoln was killed under a theater in Washington. The North states won the war and the slavery ended. But nothing was done to secure the social and legal security of the blacks. They were still discriminated and they were unlawful comparing with the white countrymen. The free slaves had no soil to feed on. Instead they were living as poor workers.

His role in the war:

Abraham Lincoln was the man who started the war because he wanted to forbid the slavery in every state, but the southern states didn't want to forbid it because the slavery was very important for them.


Basic facts about him:

He was born February 12, 1809 in Kentucky. He was the 16th president of the United states of America. He had two siblings, an older sister Sarah and a younger brother Thomas. Abraham was married to Mary Todd. Together they had 4 children Robert, William, Tadd and Edward. 1865 John Wilkes Booth shot him and he died. From the beginning the plan was to kidnap Lincoln in exchange for south prisoners. But he changed the plan and killed Lincoln. John Wilkes wasn't just an ordinary guy, he was a well-known actor also.

The biggest reason for the civil war was that Abraham Lincoln, the president of the United States, would forbid slavery in all the states of the United States. The South states want slavery but the north states do not associate with slavery like the south states of United states. The south states wanted slavery for their farms to harvest fruits and other foods. It became a civil war between the north ans south states because of Abraham Lincolns decision.
