Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 - April 15, 1865) was a human who lived on Earth during the 19th century. From 1861 until his assassination in 1865, Lincoln served as President of the United States. During his term in office, the United States was torn by a bloody civil war, which was ended shortly before Lincoln's death with a Union victory.
By 1972, Lincoln was considered by many people to be the greatest Republican president. However, his fellow Republican president Richard Nixon did not agree with this assessment. (TOS - Star Trek: Assignment: Earth comic: "Too Many Presidents")
In the 20th century, Lincoln was immortalized with a carving of his likeness on the face of Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. That monument survived at least until 2287. (TOS movie: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)
Starfleet Captain James T. Kirk would come to greatly admire Lincoln, so much so that the Excalbians recreated Lincoln to interact with Kirk and the USS Enterprise crew in order to further understand the concepts of good and evil. (TOS episode: "The Savage Curtain")
Prior to Stardate 10:26.3, Alexander Lazarus also recreated Lincoln, along with many other famous figures from Earth's past, using Lincoln's actual memories and thought patterns. How he obtained those is unclear. This Lincoln was an android who resembled the original perfectly. Kirk also met this version of Lincoln and hesitated to shoot him when all the androids were attacking the landing party. Lincoln was killed again when the planet was destroyed. (TOS comic: "The Legacy of Lazarus")
In 2376, Julian Bashir quoted a line from Lincoln's Gettysburg Address speech, "The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here". (DS9 novel: Trill: Unjoined)
