Dead Presidents Podcast Episode 16 - Abraham Lincoln & Top 5 Accomplished Presidential Dads

In an epic Season 1 finale, we follow the life of Abraham Lincoln from his humble beginnings to his days as a homespun prairie lawyer, and trace his rise to national prominence as an intellectual leader of the political movement against slavery's expansion. When his 1860 election sparks a secession crisis, one of our least-experienced presidents is thrust into the most difficult situation any president has ever faced and challenged with holding together a fracturing nation. With unflinching leadership through a bloody Civil War, he managed to not only restore the Union but bring a definitive end to the institution of slavery. Also: We count down the Top 5 Accomplished Presidential Dads (the barely literate Thomas Lincoln will not be on the list).
