Lesson plans (in the "education" section) help students examine Lincoln's position on slavery, his performance as commander-in-chief, and how U.S. history might have been different had he not been assassinated.

Interesting Fact:

Lincoln's Gettysburg Address has come to be recognized at home and abroad, not merely as a key document in American history, but as one of the gems of the English language. Acclaimed historian James McPherson has called it "the world's foremost statement of freedom and democracy and the sacrifices required to achieve and defend them."
