About 15, books about Abraham Lincoln have been published, and yet it seems that there will always be more to learn about Honest Abe. Small wonder, considering the role the 16th president played in American history and what he accomplished during his time in office. No president has confronted greater turmoil before or since, and Lincoln's staunch leadership and unparalleled ability to communicate big ideas to vast audiences helped ensure the Union's success, which of course led to the end of slavery and the birth of the United States of America that we know today. Born on February 12, , Lincoln began his campaign to gain political leadership in the s. He rose from the obscurity of a failed campaign to join the House of Representatives in to become the the Republican nominee for president in And in one of the nation's most contentious political climates, full of horse-trading and smoke-filled back room dealing, Lincoln became the country's 16th president, just as the issue of slavery was threatening to tear the nation apart—which of course, it ultimately did. Lincoln had to navigate uncharted waters from the moment he took office, and his unflinching confidence and determined resolve buoyed the nation during its most precipitous moment.
