A quiz in honor of the ‘Great Emancipator’

Abraham Lincoln may be most remembered for issuing the Emancipation Proclamation, being tall, and wearing a distinct top hat, but the former president’s interesting qualities don’t stop there. Take this quiz to learn even more about the dynamic 16th president of the United States, 150 years after his death.

And despite the fact that he was commonly referred to as “Abe,” Lincoln actually hated the nickname. He preferred to be called by his last name. We like to just think of him, instead, as the “Great Emancipator.”
