Born to a circle of relatives of farmers, Lincoln stood out from an early age—actually! (He used to be six ft 4 inches tall.) As 16th President of the US, he guided the country in the course of the Civil Struggle and noticed the abolition of slavery. However Lincoln used to be tragically shot one evening at Ford’s Theater—the primary President to be assassinated. Over 100 black-and-white illustrations and maps are incorporated.
