Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) was the U.S. president (1861-1865) during the Civil War which threatened to dissolve the nation. He is often credited with saving the union of states and ending slavery. Lincoln is the only U.S. president not to claim affiliation with a religious institution. He credited the Declaration of Independence as the text that most inspired him.
