First Among Equals

This chapter details the events during the last days of Abraham Lincoln. The civil war had ended at this time, and the Reconstruction Era began. Because of his programs that seemed to serve the majority of the people, Lincoln's popularity grew; making it harder for his opponents to prosecute cases, and even throw him out of office. His assassination on April 14, 1865, almost immediately made him a hero of the United States.
