Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States. He led the Union through the Civil War. By signing the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, he freed the slaves in the Confederate states, including the Compson slaves in Mississippi.

Note: 
CUT: When Jason Compson IV declares that "In 1865 . . . Abe Lincoln freed the niggers from the Compsons" ( Jason refers to the passing of the Thirteenth Amendment to the U. S. Constitution, which occurred a few months after the end of the Civil War. The Thirteenth Amendment expanded the terms of President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation of 1863, a war-time measure, and declared an end to slavery in any part of the United States.
