- Rider(s):Lincoln, Abraham
(1809–1865) was the 16th President of the United States, serving from1861 until his assassination in 1865. Lincoln successfully led his country through its greatest constitutional, military, and moral crisis – the American Civil War – preserving the Union while ending slavery, and promoting economic and financial modernization. Reared in a poor family on the western frontier, Lincoln was mostly self-educated. Lincoln’s death was the first assassination of a U.S. president and sent the nation into mourning. Scholars and the public rank Lincoln consistently as one of the three greatest U.S. presidents, the others being George Washington and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
