Lincoln was born in a log cabin in1809. He lived in India and Kentucky, but
later on in his life he moved to Illinois. On
his free time he enjoyed to ride down the Mississippi
River. He wanted to be a lawyer, and one day his
dream came true, but sadly for him he was still poor. He ran for public office,
but he lost. He never gave up. A little after that he married Mary Todd. His
first son was born about two years after that his first son was born. His
second son was born about two years after that. His third son was born one year
after that. Sadly his first son died. His fourth and last son was finally born.
Sadly his third son died. Mary and Abe still loved their other children. He ran
for president and he won. He was president in one of the worst times ever in America.
Abraham Lincoln is
famous for doing many things. I think he was mostly famous because he was one
of the best presidents ever. Did you know that he pulled the country together
in one of the worst wars fought in America? He
was our 16th president. He is my favorite out of the 43 there has
been so far. He signed the Emancipation Proclaimation which helped free many
hard-working slaves. He gave the Gettysburg
Address too. The Gettysburg
Address is something that tells the country that “the United
States will always be one strong
He really inspired
people by all of the deeds he did. He has made an impact on mostly slaves
because he because he tried to actually free them and most white people
wouldn’t. He made a real difference.
He is remarkable and admirable
for making a difference, helping people all kinds of things. Maybe he’s
remarkable because he is the number one war leader ever! He stopped a war and a
lot of people appreciated that. Sadly the best president ever died on April 14,
1865. Now for all that he has done there is a Lincoln
Memorial in Washington D.C
a couple minutes away from the White House.
