Lincoln’s Law Career

Prior to his two terms as President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln spent twenty-five years practicing law in Springfield, Illinois. Being from a poor family, Lincoln could not afford to study at law school, so his education was instead comprised of self-study and dedication. John T. Stuart, a lawyer that first encouraged Lincoln’s interest in studying law, engaged him as a junior partner in 1837. Lincoln later entered into a partnership with a lawyer named Stephen Logan and went on to gain renown in the Illinois Supreme Court handling bankruptcy cases. In 1844, Lincoln began a new partnership with William Herndon, which was interrupted by a two-year stint in U.S. Congress, after which Lincoln returned to practicing law.

Lincoln took on dozens of cases during those twenty-five years and came to be regarded as one of the best railroad case lawyers in Illinois. An “outstanding all-round lawyer” whose legacy “looms larger than ever,” Lincoln was respected and honest and even found time to offer advice to other aspiring lawyers. Most often, Lincoln advised young lawyers to read books of law, as he had done, as that would “make a lawyer of [them] quicker than any other way.” During his time as a lawyer in Illinois, Lincoln came to know hundreds of citizens and, in turn, came to be known by them. He was elected as the presidential candidate for the Republican Party in 1860, beating out three other accomplished lawyers for the position. In November of the same year, Lincoln was elected as the 16th President of the United States.

From the outset, President Lincoln’s term in office was marked by unrest in the United States. A few short months after Lincoln’s election, an attack on Fort Sumter in South Carolina by Confederates signaled the start of America’s Civil War. The Civil War plagued President Lincoln throughout his first term in office until April 1865, when the war at last ended. While attending a play at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C., President Lincoln was assassinated by the actor and Confederate spy John Wilkes Booth. President Lincoln died on April 15, 1865, a few short days after the end of the Civil War.



President Lincoln’s Legacy

President Lincoln is perhaps best known for his efforts in addressing the inequalities present in American society. In 1863 he signed the Emancipation Proclamation, a document that decreed slaves living in Confederate states were henceforth free men. Two years later, the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed by Congress. It declared that slavery in the United States was to be abolished. President Lincoln’s status as a champion for equality across the United States did not end with his assassination. On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his acclaimed “I have a dream” speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. In his opening lines, King acknowledged President Lincoln’s legacy, and the momentous change in America first began when President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
