Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States,
had the challenge of leading the nation during the Civil War.

strong and ethical leader around the globe. His Gettysburg
Address is considered to be one of the three greatest

deaths of two of his children and his wife had some serious
mental challenges. There were struggles with political
divides not to mention the stress of dealing with the
execution of a war.

was asked where he was going he replied with a smile, “To
hell I suppose”.

just as happy as __________”
- Their experiences allow them.
