There has been much debate about colonization, and whether Lincoln held a view that blacks and whites could not live in harmony together. Assassination In 1864, an actor and Confederate spy called John Wilkes Booth formed a plan to kidnap president Lincoln in exchange for the release of a number of Confederate prisoners. However, after hearing Lincoln make a speech on 11th April 1865 which promoted voting rights for black men, Booth became enraged, and decided to assassinate the president. He initially planned to kill a number of leading political figures, including the president (of course), the Vice president, the secretary of state, and war hero General Ulysses.

Lincoln had two long-term relationships before he married Mary Todd. The first of these was Ann Rutledge, however she died of Typhoid fever. The second was a lady called Mary Owens, to whom he got engaged - and then unengaged! Lincoln had four sons with Mary Todd, although sadly only one lived past the age of 18.
