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 Douglassâ€™ 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.
