Introduction

     The tallest president ever was Abraham Lincoln at 6 ft 4 inches tall when he was 21 years old. And weighed over 200 pounds. One possible reason he was this tall is that he had disease calles Marfan Syndrome (A disorder of connective tissue). Marfan Syndrome is gotten by a family member who had passed the disease down. And Abraham Lincoln's great-great grandfather possibly had Marfan Syndrome.
