The 16th president of the United States of America was Abraham. Abraham begat Isaac, and Isaac begat...no, that's the wrong story. This ought to be the story of the tall bearded man from Illinois who led our great nation to freedom and unity. But his term was not all hunky-dory for the glory-boy. When He was elected in 1860, not only did the south want to secede from the union of the United States, but Mrs. Mary-Todd Lincoln wanted to redecorate the White House.

The 1800's were a tumultuous time for the United States of America. At that time the south was typically slave and the northerners were traditionally for freedom. The slave states of the south and the abolitionist in the north were quarreling and the government recognizing that made efforts to stop or delay the civil war. In 1819 Missouri wanted to enter the Union a slave state. At this time the 22 states of the Union were divided evenly 11 slave and 11 free. Northern states were afraid that if

The turn of the century has always been a big deal for modern civilizations. One hundred years of life is quite large compared with the average 70 or so given to most. Because of that, people tend to look in trends of decades, rather than centuries or millennia. When it does come time for a new century, when that second digit rotates, as it does so seldom, people tend to look for change. Events tend to fall before or after the century, not on top of it, and United States history, particularly,

Men and women who knew him admired him and called him honest Abe.(Lee, 47) People throughout the world said he was one of the greatest men of all time. He was an unusual man in many ways.
