Funny how he lived in a time where average height was roughly 5'6 and is still the tallest president of all time.

All presidents should be 6ft+ IMO

Lyndon B. Johnson 6'3.25-6'3.5

Thomas Jefferson 6'2-6'3


These are the 3 tallest presidents

6ft3.75? That is very tall even today, but back in the day Lincoln was President, it was toweringly tall!
Fantastic piece of information there, by the way!
At less than 13 stone, he was very trim for such a tall man.

He was 6'3.5", half an inch taller than Lyndon Johnson.

Wouldn't disagree, here. Moreover, I wouldn't be surprised if he were 6ft5 in his youth ('in his heyday'). Lincoln was a man of great physical as well as political height.

An enormous man every bit of 6'4, as legend has it, there is a picture of him with all the Union Generals, and towers head and shoulders above them all.

I'm not sure if Abe is almost 6'4. I think he may be claiming his morning height and was probably 6'3. Still very tall 6'3 in his day was like 6'5 or 6'6 now and no one would have questioned if he claimed 6'4.

6'4 180 is right for him

Lyndon B Johnson was reported to be both 6ft3.5 and 6ft4, but he didn't look much over 6ft3.
James said on 18/Dec/16
Johnson was just under 6'3".

Reports have claimed LBJ as the tallest but with Kennedy did not look like a big 6ft4 guy

What was the average height for a man back in the 1800s? I can't imagine how tall Abe Lincoln was compared to most people back then, with the stovepipe hat adding a few more inches :)
Editor Rob: 5ft 6 range.

He's the tallest elected U.S, president yet, even still over 150 years later.
