Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865, USA)
Lincoln sought to prevent the United States from dissolving as Southern states seceded from the Union shortly after his presidential election. As commander-in-chief, he redefined and extended the war powers of his office, declared the emancipation of slaves in rebellious states, and held together a fractious cabinet to achieve victory.
Belle Boyd (1843–1900, CSA)
A Confederate spy, Boyd gathered information through artful eavesdropping on Union troops and got the information to Southern forces—famously warning Stonewall Jackson’s troops to cross certain bridges before Union troops destroyed them. Captured three times by Union forces, she was freed each time after brief imprisonments.
