Abraham Lincoln ['eɪbrəhəm 'liŋkən] amtierte von 1861 bis 1865 als 16. Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika. Er war der erste aus den Reihen der Republikanischen Partei und der erste, der einem Attentat zum Opfer fiel. 1860 gewählt, gelang ihm 1864 die Wiederwahl.

Seine Präsidentschaft gilt als eine der bedeutendsten in der Geschichte der Vereinigten Staaten: Die Wahl des Sklavereigegners veranlasste zunächst sieben, später weitere vier der sklavenhaltenden Südstaaten, aus der Union auszutreten und einen eigenen Staatenbund, die Konföderierten Staaten von Amerika, zu bilden. Lincoln führte die verbliebenen Nordstaaten durch den daraus entstandenen Sezessionskrieg. Er setzte die Wiederherstellung der Union durch und betrieb erfolgreich die Abschaffung der Sklaverei in den USA. Unter seiner Regierung schlug das Land den Weg zum zentral regierten, modernen Industriestaat ein und schuf so die Basis für seinen Aufstieg zur Weltmacht im 20. Jahrhundert.

Zitate Abraham Lincoln

„When I do good I feel good, when I do bad I feel bad, and that's my religion.“

— Abraham Lincoln
Quoted in [http://books.google.com/books?id=rywOAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA439&dq=%22when+i+do+good+i+feel+good%22 3:439 Herndon's Lincoln (1890), p. 439]: Inasmuch as he was so often a candidate for public office Mr. Lincoln said as little about his religious code as possible, especially if he failed to coincide with the orthodox world. In illustration of his religious code I once heard him say that it was like that of an old man named Glenn, in Indiana, whom he heard speak at a church meeting, and who said: "When I do good I feel good, when I do bad I feel bad, and that's my religion."

„I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to the light I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right — stand with him while he is right and part with him when he goes wrong.“

— Abraham Lincoln
Reported as an inscription quoting Lincoln in an English college in The Baptist Teacher for Sunday-school Workers : Vol. 36 (August 1905), p. 483. The portion beginning with "stand with anybody..." is from the 16 October 1854 Peoria speech.. <!-- also quoted in The Friend Vo. 79, No. 7 (26 August 1906) -->

„All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.“

— Abraham Lincoln
Attributed in The Life of Abraham Lincoln (1866) by Josiah G. Holland, p. 23; also in The Real Life of Abraham Lincoln (1867) by George Alfred Townsend, p. 6; according to Townsend, Lincoln made this remark to his law partner, William Herndon. It is disputed whether this quote refers to Lincoln's natural mother, Nancy Hanks Lincoln, who died when he was nine years old, or to his stepmother, Sarah Bush (Johnston) Lincoln.

„You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.“

— Abraham Lincoln
This is probably the most famous of apparently apocryphal remarks attributed to Lincoln. Despite it being cited variously as from an 1856 speech, or a September 1858 speech in Clinton, Illinois, there are no known contemporary records or accounts substantiating that he ever made the statement. The earliest known appearance is October 29, 1886 in the [http://anotherhistoryblog.blogspot.com/2009/02/fooling-people-earlier.html Milwaukee Daily Journal]. It later appeared in the New York Times on [http://query.nytimes.com/gst/abstract.html?res=F30817FF3E5413738DDDAF0A94D0405B8784F0D3 August 26] and [http://query.nytimes.com/gst/abstract.html?res=F00E15FF3E5413738DDDAE0A94D0405B8784F0D3 August 27], 1887. The saying was repeated several times in newspaper editorials later in 1887. In 1888 and, especially, 1889, the saying became commonplace, used in speeches, advertisements, and on portraits of Lincoln. In 1905 and later, there were attempts to find contemporaries of Lincoln who could recall Lincoln saying this. Historians have not, generally, found these accounts convincing. For more information see two articles in For the People: A Newsletter of the Abraham Lincoln Association, "'You Can Fool All of the People' Lincoln Never Said That", by Thomas F. Schwartz ([http://abrahamlincolnassociation.org/Newsletters/5-4.pdf V. 5, #4, Winter 2003, p. 1]) and "A New Look at 'You Can Fool All of the People'" by David B. Parker ([http://abrahamlincolnassociation.org/Newsletters/7-3.pdf V. 7, #3, Autumn 2005, p. 1]); also the talk page. The statement has also sometimes been attributed to P. T. Barnum, although no references to this have been found from the nineteenth century. Variants: You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time. You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time. You can fool all the people some time, you can fool some of the people all of the time, but you can not fool all the people all the time.<!-- 1886-07-05 Springfield Globe-Republic, p. 1; see talk page -->
