Hannibal Hamlin is the leader of the Temple of the Union in the year 2277. He dreams of creating a safe haven for runaway slaves in the Lincoln Memorial.



Hannibal is an escaped slave from Paradise Falls who wandered the wastes until he found Lincoln's stone head, which inspired him to found the Temple of the Union to free all slaves from slavers, and keep run-away slaves hidden from their owners.

Hannibal Hamlin is 43 years old. He was 14 when he was first enslaved. He was enslaved for 23 years. And when you meet him, he has been free for 6 years.

Interactions with the player character

Main article: Head of State

In the quest, Head of State, Hannibal will ask the player to check the Lincoln Memorial for slavers and to get the Lincoln Memorial Poster for Caleb Smith. When you get to the Lincoln Memorial you'll find out it's inhabited by Slavers. At this point you can tell Hannibal about the slavers or turn him, and everyone else, in to Leroy Walker. If you tell Hannibal about the slavers he'll ask you to kill them, and after killing them you can tell him it's safe to go to the memorial. As a reward he'll give you the Schematics - Dart Gun. You can also sell Lincoln-related objects to him for profit.

  • When first encountered in the Temple of the Union, Hannibal wears Recon Armor. However, once he has settled into his new home at the memorial (once the head is reattached), he will wear combat armor.
  • Hamlin's speeches about Lincoln are full of errors due to the information gap caused by the Great War.


Hannibal Hamlin appears only in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenes

  • Hannibal Hamlin is named after Abraham Lincoln's first vice president, a staunch abolitionist.
