When Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1861, the dark clouds of the Civil War were already gathering. After desperate attempts at avoiding conflict had failed and blood had already begun to spill, “Honest Abe” was forced to become the most active leader in American history—assuming the role of Commander-in-Chief during America’s bleakest and bloodiest period. Lincoln led the nation with integrity and determination, ultimately securing victory in the North and bringing an end to slavery. Assassinated just six days after the end of the Civil War, Lincoln is remembered as our greatest President.
