As a young man, Abraham moved to Illinois where he worked as a shopkeeper and eventually owned his own store. But in 1834, after getting to know the public and their thoughts through his many interactions, he decided to run for politics, and also to become a lawyer.
Abraham became the President of the United Stated in 1861 at the age of 52 and is famous for being the leader of the country during the civil war that began on April 12th in South Carolina, just one month after he took office.
