Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president, was known for many things; freeing the slaves, winning the Civil War, and holding the Union together, to name a few. But, he was also one of the most literary presidents to exist. Of the three books that sat on his White House desk, one of them was the works of Shakespeare—a writer Lincoln cherished throughout his life. He also enjoyed going to the theater, which in his day, often meant viewing the Shakespearean works, as well.
Shakespeare has been credited for introducing more than 3,000 words to the English language by the Oxford dictionary. It is estimated that his vocabulary ranged from 17,000 to a dizzying 29,000 words– at least double the number of words used by the average conversationalist.
Because of the Union of these two exquisite human beings, we have been inspired to develop the very unique: LINCOLN
