Personal accounts of events such as the violent death of a president can provide valuable details, but consideration should be given to the narrator’s perspective of the situation. One such was by Charles A. Leale, MD, who on the hundredth anniversary of Lincoln’s birth, offered an address to the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States in New York City. Coincidence had put Leale by the president’s side that night. He would remain there until the president died the next morning. Dr Leale was a commissioned officer in the United States Army.

It was early in his political career that Lincoln learned just how deadly it could be. In 1842 Lincoln was challenged by James Shields, the state auditor for Illinois, over an article Lincoln had written. The ‘Lost Township’ article was published in the Sangamon Journal and signed ‘Rebecca’. Shields took offence at remarks in the article that he felt were directed at him. He demanded Lincoln retract the article. Correspondence between the two failed to satisfy Shields and he set forth terms for a duel.

The problem was his political affiliation. The Republican Party had become seriously divided over issues regarding the ongoing conflict of the American Civil War. So had the Democratic Party. Large portions of the two major political parties opposed Lincoln, but there were also those within both parties who supported the president’s views. Lincoln realized that if he could find a way to bring together the factions from both political parties who shared his position on the war, then he might be able to win another term as president.
