In the speech he calls to not forget what has just taken place and reinforces that the Union is the foundation of the United States. Finally, it calls for a unification of races after the abolishment of slavery, a notion which ultimately led to the untimely demise of the president.

Author Bio: Abraham Lincoln

Author Bio: Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865) was the sixteenth president of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. He led the US through its greatest constitutional, military, and moral crises—the American Civil War—preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, strengthening the national government, and modernizing the economy. Reared in a poor family in rural Indiana, he was a self-educated man. In the 1830s he became a country lawyer, a Whig Party leader, and Illinois state legislator. He later served as a one-term member of the House of Representatives during the 1840s.
