Abraham Lincoln is one of our most beloved presidents. You probably already know plenty about him, so I'll try to keep this short and simple. America was in trouble when Lincoln took office . We had just gone through four terrible leaders (Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce, and James Buchanan), each one seemingly determined to be more awful and incompetent than his predecessor. The Union had deteriorated to the point of no return, no thanks to the "efforts" of Pierce and Buchanan (Pierce's plan to save the Union by slowly drinking himself to death was surprisingly not too successful, while Buchanan's policy of doing absolutely nothing with the hopes that the situation would rectify itself was also very unproductive - it's no surprise that these two knuckleheads now consistently duke it out for the honor of "Worst President Ever"). Lincoln came into office with the goal of preserving the Union at all costs, and he succeeded. Despite the fact that he may have flagrantly abused his power as president (he suspended habeas corpus), and was pretty ruthless as Commander-in-Chief, he is now fondly remembered by both liberals and conservatives. Sure, he may have attained a certain degree of martyrdom due to his untimely death, but that isn't enough to ensure one's standing in history (according to this fake statistic, 9 out of 10 people don't know who James Garfield or William McKinley were). He was a great man who did what needed to be done to save our country.
Anyways, here's my Lincoln song. There are lyrics, but I'm not singing them here.
