He believed that the people of each new state should vote on whether it should be a slave-state or free soil.
He failed to see that each time a new state went to the polls, every bully-boy in the USA would descend on that one state, to try to influence the vote, either legally by buying a cheap property to qualify as a voter, or illegally, by intmidating the local citizens and trying to get the result declared to be rigged.

At the beginning of the National League in 1876, nine balls were needed to walk a batter.

No. Lincoln was only 17 when Jefferson died.
Only some African American should be able to vote
Lincoln's election would spell an end to slavery, so the southern states refused to add him.
It destroyed Confederate hope for negotiated peace.
I believe Lincoln had a photogenic memory . He would read a book on war and engagements then go out and win the meeting the armies would plan against the south. Anything he needed to know he went to books then he would incorporate exactly what he read into his actions. Therefore based on that its IMO he did have one. Thank You

The Bible says Abraham lived to be 175 years of age:-
Gen 25:7 NET "Abraham lived a total of 175 years."
The exact dates calculated for his life vary, covering the period 2300BC -1800BC:-
-Born 1996BC - Died 1821BC [Ussher],
-Born 1947BC - Died 1772BC [Kingdom ministries], or
-Born 2304BC - Died 2129BC [Setterfield]
Abraham Lincoln was honored because he ended slavery and without him, we would probably have slaves working in factories and have to be doing stuff like hard labor.
No. The only time Lincoln was near the fighting was when Confederates under General Jubal Early made a raid on Washington DC in July 1864. These Confederates entered Maryland west of Washington, circled northeast, and came down on Washington from the north, near where Walter Reed Hospital is today. The purpose of the raid was to cause Grant to detach men from his army facing Lee at Petersburg and hurry them to the defense of Washington. This came to pass as Grant sent most of two army corps hurriedly to Washington. By that stage of the war Washington was completely ringed by fortifications - imposing earthworks completely connected by trenches, with strong points called forts. The troops Grant sent were filing into these works when the Confederates arrived, and the Rebels did no more than "demonstrate" as though they might attack, and indulged in some long range firing at the Yankees in their earthworks. Lincoln went out to see the excitement. This is said to be the only time a US president has been under enemy fire. It probably never happened but one story frequently told of this incident is that Lincoln was peering over the earthworks at the Confederates when future Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., then a captain in a Massachusetts regiment, not recognizing the president, told him "Get down, you damn fool!".
Lincoln was a frequent visitor to the Union Army of the Potomac. He was visiting the army and spending time with General Grant at his headquarters near Petersburg when the Confederates tried a last gasp, desperation attack in the night of March 25, 1865. The Rebels captured a strongpoint in the Yankee fortifications called Fort Stedman, but when daylight came they were exposed to the fire of surrounding Yankees and had to surrender. Close to two thousand were taken prisoner. They were put in a stockade, and Lincoln went to take a look at these just-captured Rebels, some of whom may have recognized him. An odd moment of the war.
Andrew Johnson replaced Lincoln after Lincoln was killed.
Lincoln was shot by actor John Wilkes Booth as he watched the play Our American Cousin. Booth shot him from behind and escaped over the balcony to the stage. In his fall on the stage he broke his leg because his spur got caught on the bunting on the balcony. Booth thought by killing Lincoln he could restart the civil war that ended a few days before Lincoln's death. He was wrong and the entire country was upset over the death. Lincoln's body was taken by train to Springfield Illinois to be buried. People stood for hours to view his body and pay respects to him.
They met at a dance in Springfield, IL where Lincoln lived and Mary Todd's sister lived. Mary more or less lived with her sister at the time. Mary's sister was married to Ninian W. Edwards, son of the more famous Ninian Edwards.
Abraham Lincoln didn't have good relations with his Dad. His Mother died when he was nine. His inspiration was his wife.
On November 6, 1860, Lincoln was elected the 16th president of the United States, beating Democrat Stephen A. Douglas, John C. Breckinridge of the Southern Democrats, and John Bell of the new Constitutional Union Party.
He was not inaugurated till 1861, and his first action was to keep the Northern slave-states from joining the Confederacy. He had to be diplomatic with these states, and certainly wasn't about to offend them by freeing their slaves.
Even when he issued the Emancipation Proclamation, he left these states out of the provisions.
Remember that Lincoln was not passionately anti-slavery. Like most Northerners, he was mainly against the extension of slavery into the new territories, and it was his refusal to agree to this that sparked the war.
