The 16th President of the United States, President Abraham Lincoln lived between February 12, 1809 and April 15, 1865. President Abraham Lincoln was born in Hodgenville, Kentucky; his family made their way there from Virginia. He was 6 feet and 4 inches tall. President Abraham Lincoln was a descendant of Melungeons, who were sometimes referred to as Tawny Moors. Before being elected President, he was a lawyer, part of the Whig party, Republican party then the National Union. He is most famous for being known as the Emancipator and “successfully leading his country through its greatest constitutional, military and moral crisis, the American Civil War; preserving the Union while ending slavery, and promoting economic and financial modernization.”
In the book called “The Five Negro Presidents”, the author J.A. Rogers states “Lincoln was said to be the illegitimate son of a Negro by Nancy Hanks. In his campaign for the Presidency he was often referred to as a negro by his opponents. He was even depicted as a negro. He was called Abraham Africanus the First. What gave strength to this was that his hair was more Negroid than Caucasian. So was his complexion. Of his father, Lncoln said ‘His face was round, his complexion swarthy, hair black and coarse, eyes brown.’ Of himself, ‘of dark complexion with coarse black hair and dark eyes.’ Herndon, his closest friend and law partner said he had ‘very dark skin.’ His confidential servant, William Slade, an ex-slave and Negro, was much fairer and had straight hair. Slade looked like a white man. Herndon said, ‘There was something about his (Lincoln’s) origin, he never cared to dwell on. ‘ Other writers agree with Herndon. Coleman says, ‘All we know about President Lincoln’s parentage and birth are two brief records one an entry in the Bible in his own handwriting that he was born on February 12, 1809 and the other, a brief autobiography which he gave to Mr. Jesse R. Fell in December, 1859 for a campaign sketch.’ ”

Below are two pictures of President Abraham Lincoln made by sketch artists intending to shame and make fun of President Abraham Lincoln’s Moorish lineage by calling him Abraham Africanus I. The first appeared in the “Richmond (Va.) Enquirer”.
Interestingly enough, one of the first physicians to help President Abraham Lincoln after he was shot at the Ford’s Theater was a man name Albert Freeman Africanus King.
There were many tasks with which President Abraham Lincoln had to deal, two of them involved saving the Union while implementing laws of freedom pertaining to those held as slaves. As for the Union, you can read an excerpt of’ President Abraham Lincoln’s response to Horace Greeley of the New York Tribune, July 1862:
“As to the policy I ‘seem to be pursuing,’ as you say, I have not meant to leave any one in doubt. I would save the Union. I would save it in the shortest way under the Constitution. The sooner the national authority can be restored, the nearer the Union will be the Union as it was. If there be those who would not save the Union unless they could at the same time save Slavery, I do not agree with them. My paramount object is to save the Union, and not either to save or destroy Slavery.
If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it – if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it – if I could do it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that.
What I do about Slavery and the Colored Race, I do because I believe it helps to save this Union; and what I forebear, I forebear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union. I shall try to correct errors when shown to be errors; and I shall adopt new views so fast as they shall appear to be true views. I have here stated my purpose according to my views of official duty; and I intend no modification of my oft-expressed personal wish that all men everywhere could be free.
Yours, A. Lincoln”
One thing to keep in mind is that the Union President Abraham Lincoln spoke about (the same Union mentioned in the Preamble of the United States Constitution) is a Union in which the majority was of Moorish extraction. The Union consists of Moors and European sons. As for the laws of freedom pertaining to those held as slaves, President Abraham Lincoln used Executive Orders to accomplish his goals. Those E.O.’s are:
- The Initial Emancipation Proclamation, September 22, 1862
- The Compensated Emancipation Proclamation, December 1, 1862
- The Supplemental Emancipation proclamation, January 1, 1863
- The Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction, December 8, 1863
- In addition, Mr. Lincoln guaranteed the passage of The 13th Amendment with 20 sections after it was rejected in 1864, the amendment being successfully passed in January 31, 1865 and subsequently ratified by 3/4 of the Several States becoming a permanent part of the Constitution on November 18, 1865. This is why Prophet Noble Drew Ali references 1865 in Act 6 of the Divine Constitution and By-laws.
Unknown to so many, President Abraham Lincoln was spiritually oriented. Mr. Lincoln was best friends with a Moor, Paschal Beverly Randolph, who was a great spiritual master and the head of the Rosicrucian Order in the United States as well as other parts of the world. President Abraham Lincoln had good spiritual insight into affairs and trusted his intuition, dreams/visions and spiritual guidance through signs. This excerpt from the book “The Resurrection” by Timothy Dingle-El may serve to clarify the point:
“What the psychologists generally call psychic phenomena, the popular judgment pronounces superstitions. But whatever they are, many great men have experienced them, and few have risen superior to them. Luther, of Reformation, and Fox, of the Quakers, believed more or less in the pet superstitions of their time. In the more modern world, the supposed superstitions have kept company with what are called psychic experiences. In Lincoln’s case there are a number of instances. One of them consisted of which he read a definite and similar meaning, and from which he seemed to derived assurance and satisfaction. The late Senator George F. Hoar, of Massachusetts, quotes the following in his ‘Autobiography of Seventy Years:’
‘General Grant, in an interview with the President, on the 14th of April, the day he was shot, expressed some anxiety as to the news from Sherman. The President answered him in that singular vein of poetic mysticism, which though constantly held in check by his strong common sense, formed a remarkable element in his character. He assured grant that the news would come soon, and come favorable, for he had last night his usual dream which proceeded great events. He seemed to be, he said, in a singular and indescribable vessel, but always the same, moving with great rapidity towards a dark and indefinite shore. He had this dream before Antietam, Murfreesboro, Gettysburg, and Vicksburg. ‘ “
Over the years, many people were taught an incomplete history of President Abraham Lincoln or only parts of his speeches and writings; however there are many things to learn about President Abraham Lincoln insluding, his role in maintaining the Union, his role implementing laws to free pale and dark slaves in the South (Emancipation Proclamation), and then pale and dark slaves nationwide (13th Amendment with 20 sections).
