Both lincoln and Jefferson had military careers But by far, Jefferson had an extensive military background Jefferson davis had served in the U.S. Army, and fought in the Mexican War Lincoln's military exsperience rested on a brief stint in the black hawk war in 1830's Davis and Lincoln remain a part of Kentucky. They are two figures that will forever be representative of that time in American history when brother fought against brother in the cruelest of all American wars. Both presidents were over 6 feet tall and had vice presidents under 6 feet by Danaje' Jones
