Happy Birthday Honest Abe>>>"America’s greatest president but also its greatest lawyer."
"In 1831 Lincoln left home at age 22 to strike out on his own in the struggling frontier town of New Salem, Illinois. He had no trade and few prospects. The single most striking fact about him as a young man is his genius for friendship. As one of his New Salem contemporaries recalled (as recorded in the interview notes of William Herndon quoted by David Herbert Donald), “Lincoln had nothing[,] only plenty of friends.” He was obviously one of the most likable men who ever lived, a man who radiated decency. Moreover, the better his acquaintances got to know him, the more they liked him. Those who got to know him best, such as the acquaintances with whom he shared boarding rooms as an impoverished young man, became lifelong friends. The student of Lincoln who can see him through the eyes of these friends will have a similar experience."

Very interesting article @ link.

Former federal judge Herbert Stern is himself a prominent practicing attorney who has found much to learn from Lincoln’s legal career. As a teacher of practice skills to trial lawyers he frequently asks a rhetorical question: would you rather have an edge in the facts of a case, an edge in the law of a case, or Abraham Lincoln for your lawyer? In his view, the practitioner who can learn to emulate Lincoln as a lawyer holds the key to greatness in the profession.

Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States of America and Comander in Chief of Union forces during the Civil War, was born on this day in 1809 on Sinking Spring Farm in Hardin County, Kentucky (near present day Hodgenville, Kentucky).

Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America and Comander in Chief of Confederate forces during the Civil War, was born on June 3, 1808 in Chistian County, Kentucky.

Lincoln and Davis were born only 8 months and 100 miles apart in the same state, Kentucky.

is that the only reason the civil war was fought? no.

slavery as defined as a system of forced labor is abominable. but have things really changed? you can replace physical slavery with economic slavery but it is still slavery. so in that regard, lincoln didnt do shit.

The Civil War wasn't about slavery. If it was Lincoln would have freed the slaves early in the war until waiting until it was almost over. He didn't even believe in racial equality---read his writings.

It was about state's rights---being able to secede.

Lincoln was a tyrant. He used the pretext of emancipation as reason to force, at the point of a musket, the Several States to bow to federal will.

That was the death of this nation as it was originally intended. If States have no right to secede, then they have no control over their government. Since the Confederacy was destroyed for wanting to govern itself, this country has gone down hill.

Oh yeah, Lincoln didn't like blacks at all. He was all for shipping them to Africa. In his own words, "They will not be able to integrate themselves into our society and will cause it to weaken."

I realize the war was about states rights, but where do you draw the line?
What if states rights included pedophiles?

As far as blacks not being able to assimilate, looks like he was right about that too.
