Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, particularly noted for his leadership during the Civil War, delivery of the Gettysburg Address, and the Emancipation Proclamation. Nicknamed "Honest Abe", he was a controversial figure in his own time, but has since been recognized as one of the greatest presidents, ranked with George Washington. A key factor in this was not only his statesmanship and opposition to slavery, but his assassination on April 14, 1865, days after the Southern forces surrendered. He thus became the first American president to be assassinated (but not the last, as witness John F. Kennedy) and the third to die in office. His image adorns the five-dollar bill and penny.

Lincoln was Walt Disney's favorite president. As a child, he would dress up like Lincoln for a school President's Day presentation and recite the Gettysburg Address. This fondness for Lincoln would result in choosing him as the basis for the first human Audio-Animatronics figure and develop Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln for the State of Illinois Pavilion at the 1964 New York World's Fair. It would be moved to Disneyland's Main Street, U.S.A..
This figure would serve as a proof of concept for a larger project that would become The Hall of Presidents in Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Here it was joined by audio-animatronics of every U.S. president in American history.
