Title: Abraham Lincoln, 1858 Springfield

Description: Abraham Lincoln shown in a photograph taken in 1860 in Springfield, Illinois, which depicts his height of six feet four inches; American attorney, U.S. Congressman and sixteenth President of the U.S.; born in a log cabin in Kentucky, Abraham Lincoln (AKA: Honest Abe; The Rail Splitter; Hardin County, Kentucky: February 25, 1809-Washington, D.C: April 15, 1865) was self-taught, moving at age twenty-two to Illinois in 1831, working on a flatboat, then later as a rail-splitter and store clerk, until moving to Springfield, Illinois to work as a lawyer in 1837; he served four terms as a state representative from Sangamon County, Illinois as a Whig; he married Mary Todd Lincoln in 1842, a union that produced four sons; an ardent admirer of Henry Clay, Lincoln opposed slavery early in life, distancing himself from abolitionists, and this was evident in his celebrated debates with Stephen A. Douglas (seven debates in Illinois towns in 1858); he was narrowly elected the sixteenth President of the U.S. as a Republican and worked hard to preserve the Union, though eleven southern States had seceded and a Civil War ensued; his Emancipation Proclamation, announced on September 22, 1862 and put into effect on January 1, 1863, essentially freeing the slaves and, with his Gettysburg Address, are some of the greatest documents ever produced by an American President; shortly after the war ended, Lincoln was assassinated at Ford's Theater in Washington, D.C. by actor John Wilkes Booth; he is buried in the Lincoln Tomb at Oak Ridge Cemetery in Springfield, Illinois; several films profile Lincoln, the most notable being Abraham Lincoln (1930), Young Mr. Lincoln (1939), and Abe Lincoln in Illinois (1940); American Civil War (1861-1865); John Wilkes Booth (May 10, 1838-April 26, 1865); Stephen A.
