1839: Young Abraham Lincoln became a lawyer



We know him as The Great Emancipator, perphaps the greatest president and the man who delivered The Gettysburg Address in the middle of the Civil War.   Before any of that, he was a young lawyer in Illinois:


"On this day in 1839, future President Abraham Lincoln advances to another stage in his legal career when he is admitted to practice law in the U.S. Circuit Court. 
It was during his years practicing law that Lincoln honed his now famous oratorical skills."

Lincoln was elected to the US House later and then president in 1860.
