An Alternate Answer:

As a young man, Lincoln had jobs, which consisted of manual labor. He was a railsplitter, and a Flatboatman. When he moved to New Salem, Illinois where he held jobs as storekeeper, postmaster, and surveyor. He then ran and lost, then ran again for state assembly in Illinois, won, and was reelected, several times. He then began to study law, and in 1836, at age 25 was licensed to practice law in the state of Illinois.

In 1837, Lincoln became a Circuit Lawyer, and travelled throughout Illinois, practicing law. In 1844, he formed a Private Law practice with a partner, William Herndon, and Illinois ablest Lawyer.

In 1847, he was elected to the US House of Representatives, for one single term, and became known for both his opposition to the Mexican War and the institution of slavery. In 1856, he switched Political parties, and ran for the US Senate as a Republican, against Stephen Douglas; Lincoln lost to Douglas.

In 1860, he was nominated for the US Presidency, won, and sworn in as the 16th president, on March 4, 1861.
