Which President was in office during the American Civil War?

Did you know that several U.S. Presidents have served as Commander-in-Chief during major wars, often defining their legacies through their wartime leadership?

Abraham Lincoln preserved the Union during the Civil War, issuing the Emancipation Proclamation and delivering the Gettysburg Address, hallmarking his commitment to national unity and freedom.

Franklin D. Roosevelt, the only President elected to four terms, led the country through the majority of World War II, supporting Allies with the Lend-Lease Act before the U.S. officially entered the war after the attack on Pearl Harbor. His leadership was pivotal in establishing the United Nations, aiming to prevent future conflicts.

During the Korean War, Harry S. Truman faced tough decisions, including the controversial dismissal of General Douglas MacArthur.

More recently, George W. Bush initiated the War on Terror, with invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq following the September 11 attacks, profoundly shaping the early 21st-century geopolitical landscape.

These Presidents exemplified how wars can be defining features of a presidential tenure.
