We are featuring Abraham Lincoln in our salute to President’s Day. He is considered by many scholars to have been the best President. He is credited with holding the Union together and leading the North to victory in the Civil War. Further, his actions and beliefs led to emancipation of African-Americans from the bonds of slavery.

In addition, here are few other facts about our favorite President:

* Lincoln was an accomplished WRESTLER and was defeated only once in about 300 matches.

* At 6’4″ he is our TALLEST president.

* Lincoln was the first President to have a BEARD.
