The Lincolns' fourth son, Thomas "Tad" Lincoln, was born on April 4, 1853. In 1834, he won election to the state legislature after a bipartisan campaign, even though he ran as a Whig. He then decided to become a lawyer, and began teaching himself law by reading Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England and other books too. Lincoln's description of his learning method was: "I studied with nobody." He served four terms in the Illinois House of Representatives as a Whig representative from Sangamon County. In 1846, Lincoln was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, where he served one two-year term. In 1858 Lincoln ran against Stephen A. Douglas for Senator.
