Worthy of Their Esteem

The Timeless Words and Sage Advice of Abraham Lincoln

Worthy of Their Esteem

Abraham Lincoln is one of the most revered Presidents in the history of the United States. His persistence saved the Union, and preserved our Constitution. But his wisdom, with its homespun feel, and far deeper meanings, was the backbone of his enduring popularity.
