Lincoln's way:When somebody didn't do something right, Lincoln didm't like that. For example, when we were fighting in the Civil War, Lincoln replaced his generals about 10 time, because they weren't doing the job Lincoln wanted.Even when General Meade won the Battle of Gettysburg, Lincoln replaced him because Meade didn't charge after Confederates when they were hurt. That shows how strict President Lincoln was.

Lincoln won the electon in 1860. He did't win by popular votes, he won by electoral votes. He was the only republican president, which pretty much meant that he wanted to fight in the war.

George was also one of Lincoln's many generals. In fact, Licoln hired him to be his general twice.But, Lincoln didn't get to lead long after he was elected. He was killed.
