Abraham Lincoln was the sixteenth president of the United States. He was previously a statesman from Illinois. Lincoln was formerly a Whig until it collapsed, causing him to join the Republican party. Lincoln became the Republican's candidate in the 1860 election and barely won. His victory was the direct cause of the Southern secession from the United States. Six weeks into Lincoln's presidency, the American Civil War began. He won re-election in the 1864 election but only served a few weeks into his second term as he became the first president to be assassinated on April 14, 1865. He died the next morning. Lincoln is considered by many to be the best American president in history for ending slavery, preserving the Union and passing many important Civil Rights amendments.

Birth

Lincoln was born in Sinking Spring Farm, Kentucky on February 12, 1809.

Death

Lincoln was assassinated in Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C. on April 14, 1865 and died the next morning.
