Lincoln the 16th President

You know Washington and Jefferson, Roosevelt and Adams, Bush and Eisenhower, Regan and Nixon...but do you recall the most famous president of all?

Lincoln the 16th president had a very long beard, and if you ever saw him you would be 151 years old.

All of the Southerners used to call him names. They never let poor Lincoln free their precious slaves.

Then one foggy night, he went to a play and a snobby actor snuck up on him and shot him in the back of the head.

Then how the Southerners celebrated, as they shouted out with glee. "we did it!" Lincoln the 16th president you'll go down in history.

Like Rudolph!
