Husband, father and President

Abraham Lincoln believed in the ideal that everyone in America should have the opportunity to improve his/her economic and social condition.  Lincoln’s life was the embodiment of that idea.  We know him as the sixteenth president but he was also a spouse, parent, and neighbor who experienced the same hopes, dreams, and challenges of life that are still experienced by many people.
