Reading Room: ABRAHAM LINCOLN: LIFE STORY "Part 6"

Before we continue with the Life Story of Abraham Lincoln...
...just a quick look at some of the players.
Now that we've done that, we begin telling of
The Presidency of Abraham Lincoln!
NOTE: May be considered NSFW due to reference to Black Americans as "Negroes" (which was the politically-correct term when this comic was created in 1958), so no insult or disrespect is or was meant or intended.)
Helluva guy, that Lincoln!
The end of the Civil War, and the sad conclusion of our story...
This section of Dell's never-reprinted one-shot Abraham Lincoln: Life Story (1958) was written by Gaylord DuBois, and illustrated by Alberto Giolitti, known to American comics readers as the primary illustrator of the Gold Key Star Trek comic book of the 1960s-70s.
Note: the story is over 80 pages, so it's going to run through Friday.
But it's a story worth telling, especially with a new Steven Spielberg-directed feature film starring Daniel Day-Lewis as Honest Abe currently out in limited run, so I'm going ahead and I hope you'll join me.
