RE: Lincoln's Christianity by Michael Burkhimer
Why do atheists often seem to have religious fervor?

Possibly because they anticipate an unpleasant and very longlasting surprise might finally be in store for them?

Why might it matter if Abraham Lincoln was actually an atheist?

One reason might be that, if so, then millions of folks then and since the War were cleverly and intentionally deceived. And well intentioned but naive young men might really HAVE 'died in vain'. Here's another quote that likely won't change any minds,

"Never in all that time did he let fall from his lips or his pen an expression which remotely implied the slightest faith in Jesus as the son of God and the Savior of men." -Ward Lamon
