Abraham Lincoln

About this Guide

Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States and served from 1861 until his assassination in 1865.  While much of his Presidency focused on the Civil War and the emancipation of Southern slaves, President Lincoln also had a role in the US-Dakota War of 1862.  Resources on this guide were selected to provide an introduction to Abraham Lincoln’s life and his connection to Minnesota.
