THIS needs work[edit]

This is poorly written, and missed many personal details about his life including being a country person born in a log cabin, and the personal thoughts about him Please consider a rewrite. There are many other wonderful sources. (talk) 02:58, 3 May 2015 (UTC) May 2, 2015

Re: health section[edit]

I understood that Lincoln is suggested to have had Acromegaly, rather than Marfans as stated in the article, based on his appearance and some of his medical symptoms? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:07, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Sources? References? To include such a claim, Wikipedia requires Verifiability, to Use reliable sources and all that. Shearonink (talk) 13:45, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
