Abraham Lincoln: Full Spectrum

History has been very kind to Abraham Lincoln, often referencing him as “Honest Abe” and “The Great Emancipator”.  This may due in part to stories of his early life, the struggles he endured and the heights to which he climbed politically.

One must wonder just how accurate these gushing descriptions are of the actual Lincoln, though.

The truth, as is so frequently the case, is far more complicated, and indeed darker than the saintly narrative inherited by America.

If he were alive today, could Lincoln own an NBA team?
