John Calvin Coolidge Jr. (July 4, 1872 – January 5, 1933)

Calvin Coolidge was the 30th president of the United States who was
mostly remembered for being a man of few words, which earn him the
nickname Silent Cal. He was a farmer, school teacher, and local store
clerk. Coolidge achieved national recognition for his handling of the
Boston Police Strike of 1919. He held a record number of presidential
press conferences for the time, totaling 520.

National Freedom Day is a U.S. observance honoring the signing
by
Abraham Lincoln of a joint House and Senate resolution that
later became the
13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

President Lincoln signed the Amendment outlawing slavery on
February 1, 1865, although it was not ratified by the states until
later.
