they had to shoot him from behind, because they couldn't take him head-on.  he was seriously tough.  many times after a speech, (before being president) he would  follow it with a challenge and have a fight or two.  sometimes for several hours. i don't remember  reading about him losing to anyone. ever.  that said, he was human.  everyone remembers him for ending slavery, and the civil war.  you hardly ever hear anyone mention that he also suspended the constitution,  and jailed  ALOT of journalists because they disagreed with him. for me, that's what makes him interesting. he did big things, in a big way.  he wasn't perfect, he was a real person, just like anyone else.

People should read Lincoln's quotes on race, history didn't record the real man, and his real motives.    I'll leave it at that.

Which is why I'm not going to comment further.
