Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln i/ˈeɪbrəhæm ˈlɪŋkən/ (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln successfully led his country through its greatest constitutional, military, and moral crisis – the American Civil War – preserving the Union while ending slavery, and promoting economic and financial modernization.

    And then, the negro being doomed, and damned, and forgotten, to everlasting bondage, is the white man quite certain that the tyrant demon will not turn upon him too?

    As for evildoers, for them awaits a painful chastisement;
    but for those who believe, and do deeds
    of righteousness, they shall be admitted
    to gardens underneath which rivers flow,
    therein dwelling forever,
    by the leave of their Lord, their greeting
    therein: “Peace!”
    —Qur’An. Abraham 14:28 (ed. Arthur J. Arberry, 1955)
