Abraham Lincoln was the sixteenth President and served over the duration of the Civil War. Lincoln had ran for office as a Republican, the party created for the abolishment of slavery. Abraham Lincoln decreed the Emancipation Proclamation. He emancipated the slaves. Abraham Lincoln was assassinated while in the attendance of the comedy play "Our American Cousin" in Ford Theater. He was shot by John Wilkes Booth on Good Friday, April 14, 1865 in Washington D.C. and died the following morning on April 15th.

Lincoln's Birthday  TimeLine
1809 Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was born in a log cabin on February 12, 1809 in Harden County, Kentucky.
1854 Rep. The Republican Party is formed to fight slavery.
1858 Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was nominated to the U.S. Senate by the Republican Party in 1858. In his acceptance speech he says, "A house divided against itself cannot stand... This government cannot endure, permanently half-slave and half-free... I do not expect the Union to be dissolved. I do not expect the house to fall but I do expect it will cease to be divided."
1860 Lincoln Lincoln was nominated by the Republican Party to be their Presidential Candidate in 1860.
1861 Lincoln Abraham Lincoln becomes the sixteenth President of the United States in 1861. Lincoln was the first elected President of the Republican Party.
1863 Lincoln

&

Christ
60,000 American lives were lost at the Battle of Gettysburg. Abraham Lincoln delivered his "Gettysburg Address" in November.
Walking among the thousands of graves at Gettysburg Lincoln committed his life to Jesus Christ. Lincoln said, "When I left Springfield [to assume the Presidency] I asked the people to pray for me. I was not a Christian. When I buried my son, the severest trial of my life, I was not a Christian. But when I went to Gettysburg and saw the graves of thousands of our soldiers, I then and there consecrated myself to Christ." Lincoln's commitment set his mood to the eventual proclamation of a Thanksgiving Day. 
1863 Lincoln

Thanks
Mrs. Joseph Hale maintained a thirty-year campaign, contacting President after President for a National Day of Thanksgiving. During the Civil War Mrs Hale wrote a series of editorials with the last appering in 1863 in the Godey's Lady's Book.  President Abraham Lincoln agreed and set aside the last Thursday in November as a national Day of Thanksgiving. The Day would be proclaimed by every President over the next seventy-five years.
Lincoln's Proclamation
1865 Lincoln President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated while in the attendance of the play "Our American Cousin" in Ford Theater. He was shot by John Wilkes Booth on Good Friday, April 14, 1865 in City, State.
1866 bd The first formal observance of Lincoln's birthday came in 1866, the year after his death. The House and Senate had gathered for a memorial address on his birthday. Lincoln's Birthday would never become a Federal Holiday although several states would adopt it as a legal holiday.
early
1950s
hol A Uniform Monday Plan was first suggested by NATO (National Association of Travel Organizations) in the early 1950s; calling to combine Washington and Lincoln's birthdays to the third Monday in February to be named President's Day; Memorial Day to the fourth Monday in May; Independence Day to the first Monday in July; and Veterans Day tot he second Monday in November. The plan was adopted in a few states but not all. The effort shifted to lobbying for a Federal Holiday Bill.
1968 hol HR 15951 was enacted that set the date for many of the federal holidays to simplify the holiday calendar while creating more three day weekends. Lincoln's birthday was not included.
Today hol Lincoln's Birthday is not nor has ever been a Federal Holiday. It is observed in several states that include California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, New Jersey, and New York.
