Lincoln is a surname that has its roots in the town of Lincoln, England. The town was originally a Roman town called Lindum Colonia, which, over the course of time, became "Lincoln" in Old English.


In the works of Harry Turtledove, Lincoln most often refers to Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States. Lincoln appears in the The Guns of the South, "Must and Shall", and "Lee at the Alamo". Within the Southern Victory series, Lincoln is a POV charachter in its first volume How Few Remain, and is referenced often in subsequent volumes. He has also been referenced in passing in several other Turtledove works.

Also in How Few Remain are an appearance by Lincoln's eldest son Robert and posthumous references to Lincoln's wife Mary and youngest son Tad.

Hiram Lincoln is a Confederate soldier in Southern Victory's second novel, The Great War: American Front. He is unrelated to Abraham, and his surname becomes something of a running gag.
