Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States and elected to office in November of 1860. By the time Lincoln took office, domestic turmoil had been brewing for some time, and the American Civil War was on the horizon. Seven states had already left the Union to form the Confederate States of America, and before long, more would join them.
After many desperate attempts toavoid a greater conflict, diplomacy failed and blood began to spill. "Honest Abe," the man who told us the risks we would face when a house becomes divided, became a national hero and the most activeCommander in Chief since the presidency began.
The Civil War was brutal, claiming approximately 620,000 lives - nearly half that of all wars combined in U.S. history. This war put Americansagainst Americans, neighbors against neighbors, and brothers against brothers. For four long years, our history is marked with fierce conflict, incredible bravery, and legendary leadership that only came to a close with the surrender of the Confederacy in 1865.
Through the entire war, Lincoln led with integrity and steadfast determination. He reunited the country and put an end to slavery with the Emancipation Proclamation. What he lacked in official military training, he made up for with remarkable intelligence and a gift for developing strategy that he used to overcome Confederategenerals with a lifetime of experience.
