Turn the pages of America's political history, and you are sure to find one man who clearly outshines all others and manages to attract the attention and interest of all, till date, - Abraham Lincoln! Nicknamed ˜Honest Abe' or ˜Father Abraham', Lincoln was, by far, one of the most powerful and greatest Presidents' that America has ever witnessed. Rising from a modest and humble beginning, it was his sheer determination and honest effort that led him to the nation's highest office. An astute politician and proficient lawyer, he played a vital role in unification of the states and led from the front for the cause of abolishing slavery from the country, eventually giving people equal rights, irrespective of caste, color or creed. He not only envisioned but actually brought to the forefront a truly democratic government which was led by the concept of ˜by the people, of the people and for the people'. What's more, Lincoln led the country when it faced its greatest constitutional, military and moral crises. He not only turned up victorious but also was effective in strengthening the national government and modernizing the economy. He was a saviour of the Union and an emancipator for the slaves. However, just as astonishing was his rise to the top-notch position and his eventual governance, his death was equally bewildering as he became the first U.S President ever to be assassinated. Though in his life Abraham Lincoln has been felicitated with no awards and honors, as there did not exist any awards then, he has till date retained a spot in the Top Three Presidents since 1940s. As for the presidential ranking polls conducted since 1948, Lincoln has been rated at the very top in the majority of polls.

The development of homo sapiens from apes, a type of animal, is a commonly accepted notion today, but when Charles Darwin initially proposed his groundbreaking theory of evolution in the nineteenth century, he was chastised and his work was criticized. His hitherto unheard-of thought was scrutinized by the world and the Church, and remained unaccepted until many years later, when it was declared the new orthodoxy. The DNA investigations confirmed his data and refuted the previously held religious belief that all of nature was created by God. Charles Robert Darwin was born into a wealthy Shrewsbury family and intended to pursue a medical profession before abandoning it to pursue his burning desire to be a naturalist. He formulated the hypothesis that all species evolved from common ancestors and that the branching pattern of evolution arose from a mechanism he dubbed natural selection after years of diligent research. His five-year trip aboard the HMS Beagle changed his life forever, establishing him as a world-renowned geologist. In 1858, he published his most famous paper, "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection."
