Text on bottom reads: Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) Considered by many Americans to be one of the greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln guided the nation through the Civil War. Lincoln despised war but viewed it as the salvation of the Union. As president, the former Illinois lawyer and congressman ensured the strength of his Republican Party, issued the Emancipation Proclamation granting freedom to slaves, succeeded in the preservation of the Union, and planned for magnanimous peace. In April 1865, Lincoln's life ended at the hands of an assasin, but his hope survived--"that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom--and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
