Happy birthday President Lincoln

Happy birthday Mr. President.

One-hundred-fifty years ago today, Abraham Lincoln turned fifty-one. Lincoln was preparing his bid for the Republican nomination for president at the Republican convention in Chicago, Illinois. Lincoln secured the nomination, won the presidency, and went on to become the greatest president the United States has ever had, rivaled only by George Washington and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
