I don’t have 5 but I’ll give you my top and bottom picks
Best: Lincoln, his evolution from simply a unionist to an abolitionist is one of the most amazing transitions in American history, and he was able to save the US from splitting.
Worst: Buchanan. He preceded Lincoln and was one of the weakest presidents we’ve ever had, did absolutely nothing to stifle the civil unrest of the 1850s
