Featured FindAbraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln became the president of the United States during the most divisive period of U.S. history. He gained national attention during the Senate campaign of 1858 when he and Stephen Douglas engaged in several famous debates. By the time he ran for President, Lincoln’s platform stood for national unity without slavery. While serving as the 16th President of the United States, Lincoln led the nation through the Civil War and freed millions of slaves. Lincoln was the father of four boys, the tallest President, and the only President to receive a patent. “Honest Abe” saw his country through the darkest hours, but he was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth only days after Lee’s surrender and the war’s end. Abraham Lincoln continues to be an American legend for his service and sacrifice to keep the United States as one, united country.
