Statehood for Nevada was most strongly facilitated by President Abraham Lincoln to add silver riches to the Union during the Civil War.

In a sense, perhaps the Civil War founded the state of Nevada - hence the official Nevada slogan, "The Battle Born State" reflecting how the state was admitted to the Union in 1864 during the peak of the war. Another key influence on Congress for admittance was the Transcontinental Railroad extending across the territory and linking east and west.
