Abraham Lincoln-16th President of the U.S. served during the Civil War...one of the most excruciating periods in American history. Courageous, humble and eloquent, he prevented the country from splitting, liberated African slaves in bondage in the US and made enemies because of it. He also endured personal tragedies in the death of his son and the mental illness of his wife. Sadly, he was assassinated for his courage.

Elizabeth Bacon Custer (April 8, 1842 - April 4, 1933) was the wife of General George Armstrong Custer. After his death, she became an outspoken advocate for her husband's legacy through her popular books and lectures. Largely as a result of her endless campaigning on his behalf, Custer's iconic portrayal as the gallant fallen hero amid the glory of 'Custer’s Last Stand' was a canon of American history for almost a century after his death.
General George Custer with wife Libby Custer. George Armstrong Custer (December 5, 1839 – June 25, 1876) was a United States Army officer and cavalry commander in the American Civil War and the Indian Wars. Raised in Michigan and Ohio, Custer was admitted to West Point in 1858, where he graduated last in his class. However, with the outbreak of the Civil War, all potential officers were needed, and Custer was called to serve with the Union Army.
