Abraham Lincoln
“"Whatever you are, be a good one."”

—Abraham Lincoln

As the 16th President of the United States of America, Abraham Lincoln turned his focus to civility and unity during one of the most difficult and divisive times in American history. He’s been touted as one of America’s greatest heroes for preserving the Union during the Civil War and freeing slaves in the Confederate States with the Emancipation Proclamation.

Born in February 12, 1809, President Lincoln didn’t receive formal education until into his manhood years. His passion for reading was evident to everyone around him. Lincoln’s neighbors recalled how he would walk for miles just to borrow a book.

Lincoln was assassinated in April of 1865 at Ford’s Theatre in Washington. One of the best-known speeches in U.S. history is Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. The speech reflected on Lincoln’s belief in freedom and equality for all.

Always saw this billboard on bus stops. Couldn’t agree more.

I nominate this billboard to win the prize for "Most Out-of-Context Use of a Lincoln Quote." He was saying the nation cannot remain half-slave and half-free, that it will become all one or all the other. He was most certainly not saying that we should be civil. (Ironically, I saw this while listening to a podcast on the Civil War.)

Could there possibly be anything more relevant to the political climate in the US right now?
