Biography | show moreshow less
As 16th U.S. President (1861-1865), Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) led the Union through the Civil War and issued the Emancipation Proclamation (January 1, 1863) that freed the slaves in the South. A frontier attorney and member of the Illinois State House of Representatives (1834-1841), Lincoln served as a U.S. Congressman from Illinois (1847-1849) and ran for the U.S. Senate in 1858. Although he lost that race, his debates with Stephen A. Douglas received national attention, and Lincoln won the Republican nomination for president - and the election - in 1860. Reelected in 1864, Lincoln was shot by disgruntled actor John Wilkes Booth in Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C. on April 14, 1865 and died the following morning.
