Happy Birthday, Abe!

Hey Compass fans, please join me in saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABE! 🙂

Today is our beloved President's birthday, and we just would like to take a moment to celebrate a man who accomplished so much in America's history.

Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809 and was assassinated on April 15, 1865. He was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through its Civil War—its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy. He is also on the penny and the $5 bill…can't forget those! 😉
