Born to uneducated farmers, Abraham Lincoln came from meager
origins and had only 18 months of formal education. Yet, he worked
himself up from farmer to respected lawyer to U.S. Congressman to
the 16th U.S. president. He was a humanitarian who did not believe
in killing animals for food. From the start of his political
career, he fought for the abolition of slavery, and once elected
president, he passed the Emancipation Proclamation, declaring the
freedom of any slaves in territories not under Union control.
Despite pressures from the seceded states and the resulting civil
war, Lincoln continued his goal of saving the Union while fighting
for republican values, and was elected for a second term. He was
not popular among all U.S. citizens, however, and was assassinated
by John Wilkes Booth only five days after the war was declared
