I personally had to read this book for a class project but I learned much more than what I already knew about Lincoln. I respect him not because he was a president of the U.S. but because he stood up for what he believed in and even though what he stood for risked his life, he still changed the world when it comes to racism, equality, and standing up for what you believe in.
