Reading Room: LIFE STORIES OF AMERICAN PRESIDENTS "Abraham Lincoln"

There's no better way to celebrate Lincoln's Birthday...
..than to read his life story.
Note: there are a few politically-incorrect panels referring to African-Americans as "Negro", which was the accepted term in the 1950s.
BTW, did you note that, at the top of the last page of the story, Grant and Lee have the wrong uniform colors?
Dell's never-reprinted Life Stories of American Presidents (1957) was both sold on newsstands and distributed to bookstores (where I found my copy in 1963), a rarity in those days.
Though the author is unknown, the artist who penciled and inked the entire 100-page cavalcade of Presidents from Washington to Eisenhower was John Buscema!
