Confederate troops defending Fort SedgwickDownload nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Confederate troops defending Fort Sedgwick

Description: A photograph during the Siege of Petersburg, Virginia; Confederate troops are defending Fort Sedgwick which they called "Fort Hell" the fort was located in Petersburg, Virginia, through which all but one rail line passed to Richmond, the capital of the Confederacy, during the American Civil War (1861-1864); Gen. Ulysses S. Grant (Hiran Ulysses Simpson Grant; April 27, 1822-July 23, 1885) and his Union troops laid siege to Petersburg from June 1864-April 1865 and forced Gen. Robert E. Lee (January 19, 1807-October 12, 1870) to stay and fight a defensive battle he could not win; after months of siege, Grant forced the evacuation of Petersburg and Richmond, bringing an end to the war.

Study Application Notes: Abraham Lincoln ("Honest Abe," "The Rail Splitter," "The Great Emancipator"), born February 25, 1809 in a log cabin in Hardin County, Kentucky, died April 15, 1865 in Washington, D.C.; sixteenth President of the U.S. (1861-1865); Lincoln 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 (Mary Anne Todd; December 13, 1818-July 16, 1882) in 1842, a union that produced four sons: Robert Todd Lincoln (August 1, 1843-July 26, 1926); Edward "Eddie" Baker Lincoln (March 10, 1846-February 1, 1850); William "Willie" Wallace Lincoln (December 21, 1850-February 20, 1862); and Thomas "Tad" Lincoln (April 4, 1853-July 16, 1871);

Background Information: Lincoln was narrowly elected the sixteenth President of the U.S. in 1860 as a Republican. He 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 freed the slaves and, with his Gettysburg Address, are some of the greatest documents ever produced by an American President; Lincoln was assassinated on April 14, 1865 at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C. shot by American stage actor John Wilkes Booth (May 10, 1838-April 26, 1865) and died the next day; Lincoln 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);
