1858 · A House Divided

Age 1

Abraham Lincoln's goal was to be different than the previous Senators of Illinois and voice his opinion in how he saw the State and the United States start to drift apart in the different ideology on what was right and what was wrong. Even though it would become an unsuccessful campaign strategy to win the senate seat, to this day it is one of the most famous speeches of US politics.

Age 6

Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.
1881 · The Assassination of James Garfield
