Abraham Lincoln was and is the most unlikely of any of our American Presidents. He had less leadership experience than any other President. He had the poorest formal education. He had no influential family members, no wealth to place him in positions of influence. Abraham Lincoln faced unusual challenges throughout his entire life and he used other attributes to overcome each of them. They were determination, a drive to make a positive difference in everything he did and an intellectual ingenuity that was unmatched among our most honored American heroes. This is the story of Ingenious Abe.
