He was born on February 12, 1809 in Hardin County, Kentucky, soon moving to Illinois where he studied law and became one of the most famous attorneys in the state.
There he was elected by the Republican party as a candidate for the US presidency and his political career began.
He was one of the best-known leaders during the American Civil War, he led the Yankees and was respected and applauded for his diplomatic efforts to put an end to the fratricidal war that the country was facing and for his efforts to unite and rebuild after the war.
He is known as the architect of the suppression of slavery in the country.
He was assassinated on April 15, 1865 by John Wilkes Booth and this made him a martyr and a reference for American nationalism.
