Рис. $$1$$. Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln was the $$16th$$ president of the USA. His family was poor and couldn't afford to give him good education, so Abraham was self-educated. Seeing a slave market at a young age made him a fierce abolitionist. Later he outlawed slavery in the US.

He was a hard-working man. After he had served some time in The Black Hawk War as a soldier he qualified as a lawyer in $$1836$$ and started law practice in Illinois. He held a seat in the Illinois state legislature for several years. He joined the Republican party and became their candidate for presidency. In $$1860$$ he was elected.

Ten of the southern states formed the Confederacy (the Confederate States of America) and the Civil War began. In $$1863$$ Lincoln issued the Proclamation that freed all the slaves. That was a huge step to abolishing slavery in the US. The war was won by the Union two years later. In $$1864$$ Lincoln was re-elected as the President.

Lincoln was one of the most popular politicians not only of his time, but in the overall history of America. He was assassinated by a supporter of the Confederacy in Ford's theatre and died the next morning.

Write true, false, doesn’t say:

1. Lincoln was the $$16th$$ president of the USA.

2. He held a seat in the Illinois state legislature for one year.

3. He was the President for only one term.
