Abraham Lincoln served as President from 1861-1865. He served through the Civil War, often sitting at night in the War Office to monitor the course of the War. During his Presidency he lost two sons, one to illness and the other to an accident.  Scientists and historians speculate if he suffered from a significant disease. Regardless of the reason, Lincoln aged significantly while he was president. Check out these pictures taken in 1860 (on left) and 1865. What a change!  Tomorrow, Pippa Jay at An Author’s Desk   Rita
