Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States from 1861 until his assassination in 1865.

Lincoln opposed the expansion of slavery and his election signaled seven southern slave states to succeed from the Union and form the Confederacy. His Gettysburg address became  the most quoted speech in American History. Lincolns death was the first assignation of  a US President. He has been consistently ranked by scholars and the public as one of the greatest US Presidents.

    Here in Illinois it is common to see the phrase “the land of Lincoln”. This man served during a very difficult time in US history. It is so sad to see that Abe was killed. He surely wasn’t the only president to be killed either. This should be a wake up call to all politicans that you can’t do what you like and figure nothing bad will happen to you. It doesn’t matter if you are making changes for the better or if you are corrupt.
