Biography

Sixteenth president of the United States (1861-65), who preserved the Union during the American Civil War and brought about the emancipation of the slaves. Assassinated by John Wilkes Booth in Ford's Theatre in Washington D.C., he came to be regarded as a hero and martyr. He was the inspiration for much literature, including Walt Whitman's poems "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd" and "O Captain! My Captain!" Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literaturemore
