abraham lincoln died in 1865 ..he was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth..
he shoot him at Ford's Theatre in Washington .after that the murderer said "Thus always to tyrants"
I don't know why he said that!!!! ...I believe this president gave alot to america.
The South wanted state's rights; Lincoln wanted federal/national rights. Lincoln believed slavery was wrong and that the entire country should stop. Southerners said this was "tyranical" because Lincoln was telling them what to do.
