Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln of Illinois was the 16th President of the United States. His election in 1860 precipitated the secession of South Carolina from the Union and the onset of the Civil War. Lincoln, a Republican, sought first to preserve the Union during the Civil War and then to end the institution of slavery. He served as president from March 4, 1861, until his death on April 15, 1865, after being shot by John Wilkes Booth at Ford’s Theater in Washington, D.C., the previous evening.
