Abraham Lincoln grew up in a log cabin in rural Kentucky and went on to become the 16th President of the United States. In 1858, he decided to challenge Stephen Douglas for his seat in the U.S. senate. Though Lincoln lost the election, he got the attention of national Republican Party leaders and won the party’s nomination for President in 1860. In the national race, he again faced Stephen Douglas. Lincoln won the election but his views on slavery did not make him a welcome leader in the south. By his inauguration in March, 1861 seven Southern states had seceded from the Union. At first, Lincoln made the war about maintaining the union so as not to offend the loyal slave states. But eventually, he shifted the cause to abolishing slavery and on January 1st, 1863 Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. On April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth shot the president at Ford’s Theater in Washington D.C.

Truth is often more fascinating than fiction. Since the beginning of movies, actors have been portraying figures from history and bringing them to life on screen. Mastering the well-known mannerisms and characteristics of real world figures can be more challenging than portraying a fictional character. Enormous amounts of research and drastic physical transformations are not uncommon for actors wanting to properly inhabit their role on film. Whether playing a scheming Queen, a country singer, a temperamental boxer, or a pioneering writer, those performers who can accurately play the part often find Oscar gold as their reward. Here are the Academy Award-winning actors, and the larger-than-life people they portrayed.
