great information,thanks for sharing i love president lincon and his history


It is a simple statement: Abraham Lincoln saved the United States but what a different world this could have been! Hardly worth thinking about I suppose....Happy 200th Mr Lincoln!


I just watched Ken Burn's "The Civil War" documentary and also recently saw the director's "Thomas Jefferson" documentary in which George Will calls Lincoln the greatest student of Thomas Jefferson. Amazing to think how the greatest tests of freedom, democracy, and union fell to Lincoln.

Abraham Lincoln

Indeed, during the nation’s darkest hour, Abraham Lincoln was able to ride above the storms of his life and lead as President. While he was never able to achieve complete emancipation from his psychological problems like the freedom that was won for the Negro slaves, Abraham Lincoln heroically faced the obstacles and hardships to become America’s most revered president.
