Abraham Lincoln was elected to the 30th Congress and served from 1847 to 1849. On February 21, 1848, while participating in a vote in the House of Representatives at the US Capitol Building, former President John Quincy Adams (6th) suffered a deadly stroke from which he died two days later. Lincoln was present during the ex-President's collapse.

Lincoln did not work for Adams, although for some reason Adams took a liking to him and took him under his wing. Adams was a fervent abolitionist and Lincoln was taken under his wing. He shared his 3 step plan for wiping out slavery and Lincoln made use of this later as President.
