Depends on what you mean by "important." It's not as critical as 1860 was, and I doubt another one ever will be.

But it's hugely historically significant, and the high point in a struggle in which people fought and died to be treated equally. It sends a message to the world that we aren't all racist rednecks hell bent on destroying people who are different from us (which is what a good bit of the world thinks of America these days).
