In 1863, Abraham Lincoln received reports from General Ulysses S. Grant about the superpowered individual Atticus Kent and his tremendous contributions to the Union. Initially Lincoln was skeptical of what he was hearing until Atticus came to him and Frederick Douglass and demonstrated his powers. Lincoln realized Kent's potential and understood that his powers must be used for the good of the nation.
After all Confederate resistance was quelled after the Battle of Gettysburg, Lincoln celebrated the Union victory by inviting Kent to attend a performance at Ford's Theatre. There the president was saved by Kent from an attempt on his life by John Wilkes Booth, who was then killed when he fell on his own knife. As a result, Lincoln was provided a secret service organized by Kent to ensure his safety. On May 23, 1864, Lincoln recruited Kent's help in overseeing his Reconstruction Program in the American South. On March 4, 1865, Lincoln was sworn into his second term under the completed Capitol Dome.
