The son of a Kentucky frontiersman, Lincoln had to struggle for a living and for learning. Five months before receiving his party's nomination for President, he sketched his life: "I was born Feb. 12, 1809, in Hardin County, Kentucky. My parents were both born in Virginia, of undistinguished families--second families, perhaps I should say. My mother, who died in my tenth year, was of a family of the name of Hanks ... My father ... removed from Kentucky to ... Indiana, in my eighth year ... It was a wild region, with many bears and other wild animals still in the woods. There I grew up ... Of course when I came of age I did not know much. Still somehow, I could read, write, and cipher ... but that was all." Lincoln made extraordinary efforts to attain knowledge while working on a farm, splitting rails for fences, and keeping store at New Salem, Illinois. He was a captain in the Black Hawk War, spent eight years in the Illinois legislature, and rode the circuit of courts for many years. His law partner said of him, "His ambition was a little engine that knew no rest." He married Mary Todd, and they had four boys, only one of whom lived to maturity. In 1858 Lincoln ran against Stephen A. Douglas for Senator. He lost the election, but in debating with Douglas he gained a national reputation that won him the Republican nomination for President in 1860. As President, he built the Republican Party into a strong national organization. Further, he rallied most of the northern Democrats to the Union cause. On January 1, 1863, he issued the Emancipation Proclamation that declared forever free those slaves within the Confederacy.

Most famous for serving as the vice president of the Confederacy, Alexander Hamilton Stephens was a near-constant force in state and national politics for a half century. Born near Crawfordville, in Taliaferro County, on February 11, 1812, to Margaret Grier and Andrew Baskins Stephens, the young Stephens was orphaned at fourteen, which intensified his already melancholic disposition. He graduated from Franklin College (later the University of Georgia) in 1832 and gained admittance to the bar two years later. There followed a steady and uninterrupted rise to political prominence.

Elder was born August 16, 1806 in Kentucky and moved with his wife, Martha, to Oregon in 1848 and to Olympia in 1864. He died in Olympia in 1882.

Born to Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks in Hardin County, Kentucky, Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) was the sixteenth president of the United States.

In 1816, Lincoln moved to Pigeon Creek, Indiana, where he worked on his family's farm. Following his mother's death two years later, he continued working on farms until moving with his father to New Salem, Illinois, in 1831. He became an avid member of the Whig Party and served in the state legislature from 1834 through 1840. In 1840, Lincoln began practicing law in Springfield and entered into a partnership with Stephen T. Logan. Two years later, he married Mary Todd, with whom he had four children. It was not until 1846 that Lincoln decided to re-enter politics, when he was elected to Congress from 1847 through 1849. After returning to his law practice once again in 1850, he helped establish the Republican Party in Illinois in 1856 and made a bid for the presidency in 1860. The political climate of the U. S. radicalized following Lincoln's election, culminating in the secession of southern states and the outbreak of hostilities. The Civil War commenced on April 12, 1861, and over the next four years, the Union and Confederate armies engaged in a number of battles, becoming the bloodiest conflict in U. S. history. Despite the high number of casualties, Lincoln was reelected in 1864. He was assassinated on April 14, 1865, shortly after the war ended.

Rev. William Eleazar Barton (1861-1930) The Rev. William Eleazar Barton (1861-1930) was one of the early twentieth century's most prominent writers and lecturers on the life of Abraham Lincoln. Born in Sublette, Illinois, in the same year Lincoln assumed the presidency, Barton grew up in an environment heavily influenced by reverence for Lincoln. After pursuing undergraduate studies at Berea College in Kentucky, Barton earned his divinity degree from the Oberlin Theological Seminary in 1890. He served parishes in Tennessee, Ohio, and Massachusetts before becoming the pastor of the First Congregational Church of Oak Park, Illinois, a position he held until his retirement in 1924. Four years later, Barton accepted an appointment as lecturer at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee, where he also organized and served as pastor of the Collegeside Congregational Church.

Barton's work as a writer produced a number of denominational manuals for church organization and a series of books presenting the wisdom and parables of a character he named Safed the Sage. For the last ten years of his life, however, Barton was best known to the public as a prolific author and lecturer on Abraham Lincoln. His publications about Lincoln included The Soul of Abraham Lincoln (1920), The Paternity of Abraham Lincoln (1920), The Life of Abraham Lincoln (1925), The Great and Good Man (1927), The Women Lincoln Loved (1927), and The Lincoln of the Biographers (1930).

In the course of compiling material for his writings and talks, Barton visited Lincoln sites in Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois; interviewed surviving Lincoln relatives and acquaintances; and traveled as far as California and England to collect information and conduct genealogical research on the ancestry of the Lincoln family. While acquiring a large collection of books, periodicals, pamphlets, manuscripts, and ephemera related to Lincoln and the Civil War era, Barton also purchased privately or at auction historical materials amassed by other Lincoln collectors such as John E. Burton and Osborn H. Oldroyd.

Biographies

Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States, was born February 12, 1809, in Hardin County, Kentucky. He was assassinated on April 14, 1865, at Ford's Theatre in Washington by John Wilkes Booth.

Alfred R. Elder was born August 16, 1806 in Kentucky and moved with his wife, Martha, to Oregon in 1848 and to Olympia in 1864. He died in Olympia in 1882.

John Palmer Usher, born in 1816 in Brookfield, New York, was the Secretary of the Interior under Abraham Lincoln. He resigned in 1865 and became a lawyer for the Union Pacific Railroad. In 1872, he moved to Lawrence, Kansas, where he served one term as mayor. He died in 1889.

The wire ran, "What news? Do you hear firing this morning? A. Lincoln." It was sent August 31, 1862, at 7:10 a.m. to Colonel Haupt at Alexandria, Virginia, near the end of a disastrous campaign for the Union. This was the aftermath of the second Battle of Bull Run, and Confederate forces were only eleven miles from the capital city. Washington's defenses were lighter than the Southerners suspected, so Lincoln needed to know if there was action on the front in order to remove the government if necessary. Haupt telegraphed back, "All quiet," giving the Union a chance to reinforce the city.

The messenger who carried the dispatch to the telegraph office asked the president if he could keep the original note. The slip of paper was passed down through his family and later acquired by the Owensboro (Kentucky) Area Museum.

Abraham Lincoln was born February 12, 1809, in Hardin County, Kentucky, and raised in Indiana. The family moved to Illinois in Abraham's early adulthood, at which time he became involved in politics. He won the presidential election on the Republican ticket in 1860, and led the country through the Civil War. Following Lee's surrender at Appomattox, Lincoln addressed a large crowd at the White House on April 11th, with some suggestion in his speech that Reconstruction would include the enfranchisement of some African-Americans. Three days later, John Wilkes Booth, who had been a member of the audience, shot Lincoln while he and Mary were watching a play at Ford's Theater. Lincoln died the next morning, on April 15th, 1865. Though he did not live to see the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment, which abolished slavery in the United States, his Emancipation Proclamation opened the doors to this amendment, and following its easy passage in the Senate, he was active in gaining support in the House.
