A Moment In History: Abraham Lincoln

by ian

We explore the man who, many historians say, single-handedly saved the United States of America during its darkest period. He guided the nation through a bloody Civil War and led the nation away from the vile practice of slavery. On March 4, 1861, he began his first term as US president, and 4 years later on the same day, he began his second. He was Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States.
