Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809- April 15, 1865) was the _______________________________________ President of the United States of America. He served as President from March 4, 1861, until April 15, 1865 (he was re-elected in 1864). Lincoln's _______________________________________ was Andrew Johnson (1808-1875).

Abraham Lincoln was born in a ____________________________________ cabin in _______________________________________. He had very little formal schooling. He eventually became a lawyer and a Republican politician. Lincoln earned the nickname "Honest _______________________________________." He married Mary _______________________________________ in 1842.

During Lincoln's presidency, the _______________________________________ states seceded from (left) the Union because Lincoln and the Northern states were against _______________________________________. Six weeks after becoming President, the _______________________________________ War began. In this war, the _______________________________________ states (which stayed in the Union) fought the Southern states (called the _______________________________________). The Civil War lasted from 1861 until _______________________________________.

On Jan. 1, 1863, Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which eventually led to the _______________________________________ of all slaves in the USA. During the Civil War, Lincoln gave many speeches, including the Gettysburg _______________________________________ (Nov. 1863), a short speech in which he stated how a country must be dedicated to human freedom in order to survive. Lincoln was _______________________________________ President in 1864.

General Robert E. Lee (from the Confederacy) surrendered to General Ulysses S. _______________________________________ (from the Union) on April 9, 1865, effectively ending the Civil War.

Lincoln was shot on April 14, 1865, by John Wilkes Booth (an actor). Lincoln had been attending a __________________________________ at Ford's Theater in Washington, D.C. Lincoln died the next morning. He was the first US president ever _______________________________________. Andrew _______________________________________ (Lincoln's Vice-President) became the next US _______________________________________.
