Born in Kentucky, lawyer Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States from 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. He led the nation through the Civil War, preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government and modernized the economy. In short, his life was an uplifting reminder of how a president should conduct himself for the benefit of his fellow citizens. This book features a brief biography of Lincoln, selected excerpts from his letters and speeches, examples of his wit and wisdom, alongside cartoons and portraits of the time that throw light on events he was involved in.
