ABOUT ABRAHAM LINCOLN [In Short]

1809 - Abraham Lincoln was born on a
stormy morning on February 12, l809 in a
log cabin on the Kentucky frontier. He was
born on a bed of poles covered with corn
husks. Lincoln was named after his
grandfather. His parents were Thomas
Lincoln and Nancy Hanks. He had one sister,
Sarah.
1834 - Lincoln, age 24, served in the state
government of Illinois. He was elected to
the legislature as a Whig, where he
denounced slavery, saying it was "founded
on both injustice and bad policy."
1836 - On September 9, Lincoln received his
law license and is a leader of the Whig
party. He first practices law in Springfield,
Illinois. He needed a place to keep his
important papers handy, so he tucked them
into his tall black hat.
1842 - On November 4, Lincoln married a
lively girl from Kentucky, Mary Todd. She
was born in Lexington, Kentucky on
December 13, l8l8 to a prominent family.
She and Lincoln became good friends.
During their courtship, their relationship
waxed and waned, but in the fall of 1842
they decided to get married.
1860 - Lincoln is elected the 16th President
of the United States, the first Republican,
receiving 180 of 303 possible electoral
votes and 40 percent of the popular vote,
with the South voting almost solidly
against him. This was a difficult time to be
president, since many Southern states did
not agree with Lincoln on slavery, and
declared they were not a part of the United
States.
1761 - The South leaves the Union and the
Civil war begins on April 12, with shots
fired on Fort Sumpter. The U.S. struggled in
a Civil War, but Lincoln was the glue that
held our nation together. Fort Sumpter
eventually was surrendered to South
Carolina.
1863 - On January 1, President Lincoln issues
the final Emancipation Proclamation freeing
all slaves in territories held by
Confederates and emphasizes the enlisting
of black soldiers in the Union Army. The
war to preserve the Union now becomes a
revolutionary struggle for the abolition of
slavery.
1864 - Lincoln is reelected...
