Read the passage and answer the questions.

Abraham Lincoln is one of the most famous presidents ever elected in the United States. He is also one of only two American presidents to ever be assassinated. He was born in 1809 in Kentucky on the western frontier. He worked hard and was considered a very strong man. He was self-educated and eventually became a lawyer in the country region of Kentucky.

After that, he started his career in politics. He was elected to the Illinois Legislature. Lincoln was very outspoken against slavery. In 1860 his anti-slavery campaign won him the Republican nomination for president. He won the election but the American Civil War began shortly after. During the war, Lincoln declared the "Emancipation Proclamation," a speech which introduced the law he is most famous for. This law stated that slavery in America was to be abolished; all slaves were to be freed.

After the North was victorious over the southern states, Lincoln was very happy to finally get to govern his country in relative peace. However, Lincoln's presidency and life would not last much longer. On April 14th, 1865, while attending a play in Washington, D.C., Abraham Lincoln was shot in the back of the head by John Wilkes Booth. Booth, believing the Civil War was still being fought, assassinated the president to further the cause of the Confederate Army. He was tracked down and killed ten days later by Unionist soldiers.
