Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865) was the sixteenth president of the United States. Lincoln was a self-educated lawyer, and served as a Illinois state legislator in the 1830s, and as federal representative from Illinois’ seventh district from 1847 to 1849. He advocated for full-scale industrialization of the U.S. economy, encouraged the building of factories, and opposed the Mexican-American war of 1846. He was elected to the presidency in 1860, an event which prompted seven slave states to leave the Union. In 1863, during the height of the Civil War, Lincoln delivered the Emancipation Proclamation. Shortly after the surrender of the Confederacy at the Appomattox court house, Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth at Ford’s Theatre, Washington D.C. Widely regarded as one of America’s best presidents. Lincoln’s political theory and policy remain influential in modern American legislatures.
