Jared Cassell Orrin Gibson APUSH Period 4 March 1, 2016 Abraham Lincoln Research Paper Abraham Lincoln has become known, to some, as “The Great Emancipator,” but has he really earned this title? Was Lincoln a great emancipator, or was he a racist politician. Lincoln was neither of these extremes, he was a man who tried to get on top and gain popularity. He had good intentions, but he did not use the correct means of achieving these goals. Lincoln was a good hearted man, but he should have achieved these goals in a better manner. Eric Foner, said that the Emancipation Proclamation was an invitation for blacks to join the Union(Foner #1, 249). This goes to show that Lincoln may have wanted to use the blacks, but their is another side to that. This could be that Lincoln wanted to get African-Americans and White people to become adjusted to being with one another, and working together. There is always two views to one story, it just depends on how you look at it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
