Photo taken by Alexander Gardner that's been colorized. This photo was taken in 1865 just two months before President Lincoln was killed.

Presidents of the United States of America. To quote the movie "American President" the presidency has everything to do with character. There are some real characters here.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN (1809-1865) 16th President of the United States, who succesfully led our country through the monumental crisis of the Civil War. He was assasinated shortly after the war ended.
I'd love to show kids this picture of Dr. Martin Luther King!! He looks thoughtful, calm, frustrated and strong all at once!! In most photos he looks so poised that it doesnt look like he is struggling.
