Expanded Description:

Abraham Lincoln - February 12, 1809 to April 15, 1865

Abe Lincoln, Honest Abe, the Great Emancipator, the Railsplitter... all of these are descriptive nicknames for the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Best known for abolishing slavery, saving the union and the Gettysburgh address, Lincoln was a hard-working man born in a one-room log cabin in rural Kentucky. He went on to be one of the most successful lawyers in Illinois before being chosen as the Republican candidate for the 1860 Presidential election. Lincoln was re-elected in the 1864 election and was assasinated in April of 1865.

While Lincoln spent most of his life in central Illinois, historical markers, likenesses and monuments and other rememberances of Lincoln can be found throughout the United States.
