Four Fateful Elections Article summary

The purpose of this article was to inform young adults on how these important elections played out and all the candidates' views and opinions. It also told how the world would be if another one of the candidates was elected such as if President Lincoln was not elected, slavery would have continued in the United States of America for who knows how long. If Roosevelt won the 1912 election it would have changed the history books; it would have been the first third party presidential election ever. There has never been a third party election to the present day.

The Author met his/her goal because he/she wrote an article that informed, entertained, and showed how these elections played an important role in American history up to the present day.
