Transcript of Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln:
Respected and Famous Leader Born: February 12, 1809 Parents were Thomas Lincoln
and Nancy Hanks Nancy died 1818 from milk sickness In 1819 Thomas remarried to Sarah Bush Johnston who became an influential role in Lincoln's life 1832- Lincoln was enlisted to fight in Black Hawk War under Colonel Zachary Taylor After the war, Lincoln ran for a seat in the Illinois House of Representatives 1834-1842 elected as a member of the Whig Party to the Illinois legislature 1847-1849 served as a U.S Representative 1854- was elected to the state legislature but resigned to run for U.S Senate 1860-Lincoln nominated for presidency by Republican Party and won against William Douglas
William Douglas Abraham Lincoln 1861- American Civil War starts (I'm not putting in pictures because it was too gory) 1862- Emancipation Proclamation is passed, allowing slave to fight 1854- reelected as President 1865- the war ended! Yayyy!!! BUT ALSO... In 1865 Abraham Lincoln was assassinated on April 14 in Ford's Theater.... By some crazy Southern hick.. named John Wilkes Booth Lincoln went under a 9 hour coma and died the next morning on April 15, 1865 And to add insult to injury, the Thirteenth Amendment was passed the following December, freeing all the slaves in the U.S So Lincoln never got to see his work be finished. But Lincoln will always be remembered as the excellent leader and visionary he was He was determined and wanted to learn, a quality which a good leader has in himself today. He had perseverance with everything he did, and it paid off by giving the lives back to hundreds of African Americans. BUT TO MAKE YOU SMILE AFTER MY depressing DEEP MOMENT.... At first, I couldn't find a picture of Nancy Hanks, so I drew this really prettyful one. But then I found one! Umm... SPINNY!!! super tiny... EXCESSIVELY LARGE!!!!!! more zoomy-zoomy Ok, I'm done now. Thanks for pretending to pay attention! By Vicky Huggins and Heather Phillips
