Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. At age 23, with no real qualifications and a very limited formal education, Abraham Lincoln ran for his first Illinois political office. He failed in that campaign for the state legislature, but two years later gained a seat as a member of the Whig Party.

Abraham Lincoln's 1st political speech was on October 4, 1854. The speech, with its specific arguments against slavery, was an important step in Abraham Lincoln's political ascension.
