Abraham Lincoln

By Brittany Antonacci January 23, 2020 0 comments

Born in Kentucky on February 12, 1809—Abraham Lincoln was a man who without a doubt was able to improve our nation above and beyond typical societal bounds. Lincoln did not attend college and only received about eighteen months of a formal education. However, he was able to gain most of his knowledge through his travels and was an avid reader who had a lust for learning. 

Lincoln grew up in humble surroundings as the son of a farmer. As he grew up, he decided to make the move to Salem, Massachusetts where his ability to read and write became his primary asset. After making his mark on the people of New Salem, the president at the time (Andrew Jackson), appointed him to postmaster. Following this Lincoln served four terms as the state legislature before announcing his candidacy for president in May of 1860. Lincoln ended up securing the majority of the popular votes and was sworn in on March 4, 1861. 

Throughout his presidency, Lincoln was able to accomplish many human rights  efforts that no other president attempted to work on before him. This includes preserving the union throughout the entire Civil War, the authorization of the first railroad connecting the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, and the beginning the process of The Emancipation Proclamation – which eventually freed over 3.5 million slaves from Confederate states. 

Unfortunately, Abraham Lincoln was assassinated on April 14, 1865 while attending the play Our American Cousin at the Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. –he had been shot in the head by the well-known stage actor by the name of John Wilkes Booth. Lincoln did not die immediately but was transferred to the Peterson House (a boarding house nearby), where he was pronounced dead the next morning. Lincoln was a president who stood up for what he felt was right, which in the time period was unprecedented, and as a result he suffered the ultimate ramification to make a difference in the United States of America!
