All about Abe: Why we’re still fascinated by Lincoln

Ask any school kid about Abraham Lincoln, and he’ll spit out these facts:

We call him Honest Abe. He was born poor in a one-room log cabin. He was our 16th president. He wore a top hat. He was very tall. He led the North in the Civil War. He abolished slavery. He gave the Gettysburg Address. He was assassinated in Ford’s Theatre by John Wilkes Booth.

Now ask that same kid about Grover Cleveland. Or William Howard Taft. Or how about Herbert Hoover?
