The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
Today is the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth. As former presidents go, this one's an all-star. He totally rocked the Civil War era, bringing the nation together in a time of crisis. kristih documented President Lincoln, or a reasonable facsimile thereof, buying commemorative stamps of himself. This truly is a historic moment in time. It's interesting to look back at Lincoln's time, especially in light of the recent inauguration of the nation's first black president, and we're fascinated by the results of the Abraham Lincoln voice project. We asked you to try out uploading your version of Lincoln's second inaugural speech. You rose to the occasion and we couldn't be more excited. San Jose State University students read the speech, and the iReport kit made the rounds to track down some amateur orators. An aspiring president gave the assignment a try. And maybe coolest of all, we got some President Lincolns in the mix. User benderxr pulled out all the stops, doing his piece in full costume with black-and-white video. PunjabiPower, a Canadian, unleashed his inner Abe and we even got a tiny Lincoln from tgfe. So check out the lung-busting work they did, mixed into a nifty mashup video, and see all the stories that we looked through. Think you might have what it takes? Give it a shot and show us what you've got. Oh, and comment below and tell us which of the Lincolns above is your favorite.

Lincoln actually did not want to freethe slaves. He only did it to save the union. White historians and school teachers have buil this man up to be something he actually is not. Ih you want to check out what I have said, find a copy of lincolns letter to Horace Greely.
Lincoln was a great man who kept America united in day of civil war.His contribution to demolish to end slavery, a black spot on the face of Americans and humanity will keep him alive for ever.Although He HAS TO PAY TO END SLAVERY WITH HIS LIFE BUT HE IS AND WILL BE LIVE FOR EVER.ALL GREAT MEN KEEP LINCOLN AS THEIR ROLE MODEL.
