Featured Today: Abraham Lincoln Spirit of America Award

Learn about the most recent award recipient

Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States, is considered one of America's greatest presidents. He safely led the country through some its darkest days -- those of the Civil War. When the fighting between the North and the South ended and the Union was preserved, Lincoln, a prolific writer, inspired and healed the nation through his words of comfort and wisdom, "...that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." Through word and deed, Lincoln gave to the nation a lifetime of service. "With malice toward none and charity for all" he gave of himself ultimately making the supreme sacrifice.

Through the Abraham Lincoln Spirit of America Award, the Thirteen-Fifty Foundation honors individuals who, like Abraham Lincoln, have demonstrated the spirit of America and their commitment to the nation through active, purposeful citizenship not only through deed, but also through word and unique artistry.
