Abraham Lincoln, The Ace of Clubs
16th President of the United States, 1861—1865
Abraham Lincoln at 6’4” was our tallest president and the first to wear a beard. He was an unpretentious and kind—hearted man who liked a good joke. He suffered severe bouts of mental depression, and loved Edgar Allan Poe’s poem “The Raven.” He held the nation together during its most difficult time. Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth, one of the most famous actors of his day.
