Here is my take on this SC:

(A) since they were each -
'Since' stands for time not reason. 'Because' would be more appropriate. Furthermore, the pronoun 'each' does not agree with plural noun Primary figures.
(B) who were both - Relative pronoun 'who' seems to refer to Lincoln's Birthday and accepted month of Frederick Douglass’ birth. This is wrong, as who should refer to people.
C) This is it
D) both of whom were - similar problem like in B. Here 'whom' refers to birthdays, not people
E) each of whom was one of the - similar problem like in E. Here 'whom' refers to birthdays, not people

I will go with 'D'.
I don't think 'both men' in 'C' is right because the sentence has no reference to any men, it refers only to their birthdays.

I pick C.

D is out because "Both of whom were" is wrong. "Both who were..." would have corected this error.
