Title: Abraham Lincoln

Description: Abraham Lincoln (AKA: Honest Abe; The Rail Splitter; The Great Emancipator; February 25, 1809-April 15, 1865); sixteenth President of the U.S. (1861-1865); shown is a photograph of Lincoln when he was a U.S. Representative from Illinois in 1847; Lincoln was an American attorney and U.S. Congressman before becoming president; born in Hardin County, Kentucky, 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); an ardent admirer of Henry Clay (April 22, 1777-June 29, 1852), Kentucky U.S. Senator, Lincoln opposed slavery early in life, nevertheless distancing himself from abolitionists, and this was evident in his celebrated debates with Stephen A. Douglas (April 23, 1813-June 3, 1861), (seven debates in Illinois towns in 1858); he was narrowly elected the sixteenth President of the U.S. in 1860 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 Theatre in Washington, D.C. by actor John Wilkes Booth (May 10, 1838-April 26, 1865); 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);
