February 12, 1809, Abraham Lincoln was born, in Hodgenville, KY. Lincoln was elected into office on February 6, 1860. He really believed in the land of the free. In fact, he fought for the abolishment of slavery and for the Emancipation Proclamation. One of the reasons, the civil war started. He was popular because of his top hat and tall stature. In addition to everything else Lincoln also came up with a national banking system while in office. As you can see, he was a really busy man.
Then, on April 14, 1864, Abraham Lincoln became the first president to be assassinated. All in all the Civil War ended in May of 1865, and the 13th amendment passed on December 6, 1865. Celebrated every year on his birthday for all he has established. And for all he has done.
