Abraham Lincoln was an important personality in the history of the United States, as well as the 16th President of the country, known mainly for abolishing slavery and managing the country during the hardest times in its history, the Civil War.

Due to the poorness of the family and early loss of the mother of the children, Abraham was mainly self-educated. In the 1830s he started his career as a lawyer and social activist promoting the ideas of negative effects of slavery on the development of society. Lincoln turned out to be very successful in politics and social influence, so he became a leader of Whig Party and in the 1940s he was appointed a member of Congress of Illinois. In the 1850s, he became number one of the Republican Party and in 1860 he was elected the 16th President of the United States of America.
