Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, served from 1861 to 1865. Lincoln was president during the Civil War and was elected based on his unwillingness to expand slavery. In 1863, he signed the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing the slaves in Confederate states. He was reelected in 1864, but was assassinated at Ford's Theater April 14, 1965, just days after the war's end. (Lawrence Thornton/Getty Images)
The Civil War
Charity McCorkle Kerr and Nannie Harris, relatives of William Quantrill's men. Killed in 1863 in the jail collapse. The jail was intentionally weakened by Union soldiers in many reports and collapsed; this killed 6 ladies,(all under the age of 20) and paralyzed a few more. Along with theft, murder of innocent civilians, torture by hanging, and many other atrocites daily perpetrated by Yankee soldiers intent on revenge, Quantrill finally realized the raid into Lawrence was necessary.

This image depicts the scene of William Quantrill's raid in 1863. Historian David Kennedy, of Beebe, Ark., says after 15 years of research he can prove Quantrill staged his own death, went on to raise Cain with the notorious bank robbers Frank and Jesse James, and later married and settled down in Arkansas.
