This is the idea that embodies Abraham Lincolns bio, in addition to being the first president of the United States who, after his assassination, reached the rank of a martyr of the country. His legacy is alive, due mainly to his mastery of the art of rhetoric. No other American president is as widely cited and his words still in force. The Civil War left marked generations of Americans and it was Lincoln who saved the Union. He led his nation in war with firmness and resolution and at its end, he decided to pursue a policy of national reconciliation. He also laid the foundations for the emancipation of slaves in a country like the United States, where racial differences were maintained well into the second half of the twentieth century. His is also considered as a global symbol of democracy and freedom.
