Abraham Lincoln-Brief Life Sketch

Abraham Lincoln was a lawyer, humanitarian, and the 16th President of the United States of America. He was born on 12 February 1809 in a very poor family. His father’s name was Thomas Lincoln and his mother’s name was Nancy Hanfush Lincoln. His parents were illiterate and miserable, although they encouraged Abraham to go to school. He learned English in the village school through his own efforts. Due to financial difficulties, he had to work with his father at a young age. In 1831, Lincoln’s family moved to Illinois and settled there. There he was employed as a warehouse keeper in the port of New Salem. There he gained popularity for his friendliness, honesty and eloquence. In 1832, he desired to participate in active politics and contested the election of the provincial legislature, although the defeat was inevitable. Again he ran for the election in 1834 and won the next three major elections. He studied law from the beginning of his political career and he became one of the most senior lawyers in Illinois. He married Meritod in 1842 and eventually had four sons. In 1848, Abraham Lincoln was elected to the US Senate from Illinois. At that time, the United States strongly opposed the practice of slavery and introduced a bill in Parliament to abolish the abominable practice, although the bill was rejected. Lincoln was defeated by Senator Douglas in the 1858 election, although Lincoln won the election in 1860 from the Republican Party of America. On February 13, 1861, Lincoln became the sixteenth President of the United States of America. As President, he faced a civil war over slavery. He faced it with much patience, courage and strategy. In the midst of the bloody Civil War, a decree dated January 1, 1863, made this order permanent in the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. On April 9, 1865, the American Civil War ended. Just five days later, Abraham Lincoln was shot dead by an actor named Booth at the Ford Theater in Washington. He died on April 15, 1865.  0 0 0
