Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was an American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through the American Civil War—its bloodiest war and perhaps its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.

Pres Lincoln focused on the things of truth and equality to all. I do find it ironic though since his teeth were made out of ivory pearl mixture

Most people believe that President Lincoln sported a beard for the majority of his life, but in actuality he spent most of his life without facial hair. He only began growing his whiskers in 1860, during his run for president.
