Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln ( February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through its Civil War—its bloodiest war and an event often considered its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.  In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.

Lincoln has been consistently ranked both by scholars and the public as one of the three greatest U.S. presidents.
