Abraham Lincoln was elected the 16th president of the U.S. in 1860. He received fewer than 2,000 votes in VA, most from present-day WV. Lincoln preserved the Union, ended slavery, and played the decisive role in the admission of WV to the Union, signing the statehood bill on December 31, 1862. Died on April 15, 1865. Lincoln County, created in 1867, was named in his honor.
