Gettysburg Adress


The Gettysburg Address is a speech by U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, one of the best-known in American history.[1] It was delivered by Lincoln during the American Civil War, on the afternoon of Thursday, November 19, 1863, at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, four and a half months after the Union armies defeated those of the Confederacy at the Battle of Gettysburg.

  2. High ranking Confederate Officals and those accused of crimes against the P.O.W would be prosecuted.
  3. States could rejoin Union when 10% of population took oath of allegiance... form new government and send reps to Congress.

RE-election of Abraham Lincoln


The United States presidential election of 1864 was the 20th quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 8, 1864. Abraham Lincoln was re-elected as president. Since the election of 1860, the Electoral College had expanded with the admission of Kansas, West Virginia, and Nevada as free-soil states, but the electoral process was entirely disrupted by the American Civil War. No electoral votes were counted from all eleven Southern states, but elections were held in the Union-occupied states of Louisiana and Tennessee.[1]

Lincoln ran as the Republican nominee against Democratic candidate George B. McClellan, who ran as the "peace candidate" without personally believing in his party's platform. A group of Republican dissidents nominated John C. Frémont, who later withdrew and endorsed Lincoln. In the Border States, War Democrats joined with Republicans as the National Union Party, with Lincoln at the head of the ticket.[2]

On November 8, Lincoln won by more than 400,000 popular votes on the strength of the soldier vote and military successes such as the Battle of Atlanta.[3] Lincoln was the first president to be re-elected since Andrew Jackson in 1832.

Assassination of Abraham Lincoln


The assassination of United States President Abraham Lincoln took place on Good Friday,[1] April 14, 1865, as the American Civil War was drawing to a close. The assassination occurred five days after the commander of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, General Robert E. Lee, surrendered to Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant and the Union Army of the Potomac. Lincoln was the first American president to be assassinated,[2] though an unsuccessful attempt had been made on Andrew Jackson 30 years before in 1835. The assassination was planned and carried out by the well-known stage actor John Wilkes Booth, as part of a larger conspiracy in a bid to revive the Confederate cause
