There is no historical summary for this US President. You can improve LPedia.org by summarizing his political career and the situations he was in.
There appears to be two Abraham Lincolns. There is the saintly, benevolent, central-bank opposing abolitionist -- and then there's the person who really existed. Aside from superficial similarities they have almost nothing in common.
Lincoln is very possibly the least libertarian president in US History. In addition to his desire to remove non-Caucasians from the country when he wasn't unabashedly backing up slaveholders (this includes representing them in court), his locking up political opponents and journalists who dared to disagree with him, his blatant and overt support of what we would call corporate welfare, and his firm support of the idea of bringing back another Bank of the United States, he also was actively involved with the decisions to commit what can only be described as war crimes.
See this page for a quick summary that focuses on what Lincoln did to change the nature of the Federal government.
