Abraham Lincoln My biography report on: Abraham Lincoln By: Timothy Voloshin Basic Details • Abraham Lincoln was born on Feb. 12, 1809 in Kentucky. • When Abraham’s father was only six years old his father took him to the woods, but at the woods there were Indians and they shot his father and another Indian took Abe and started pulling him out of the woods but Abe’s older brother shot the Indian and Abe escaped. • When Abe was nine years old his mother died. • One time Abe went to school with his sister Sarah, some boys called the kids that go school “School-butters” and the school kids ran after them and Abe went with them and Sarah rushed home and Abe’s dad (Thomas Lincoln) ran after him and searched and searched and searched but didn’t find him. When he came to school office he found Abe on the bench sound asleep. • When Abe was still a young boy he already was a story seller. • When Abe was 19 a rich farmer asked him to take a boat to New Orleans to sell things there. He earned $10 by doing that job. • Abraham Lincoln died on Feb. 12 1809 in a theater in Washington D.C. • Accomplishments. Lincoln’s most important accomplishment and contribution to society was the abolition of slavery. • When Abe became presedent of U.S.A he told the south to stop slavery. • But instead of doing that they said, “No we want slaves and we will start a new country called the Confederate States of America.” • After that there was war between the north and the south from 1860-1865 and the north won and slavery stopped! • A little after that in 1865 Abraham went to the theater and there he was assassinated by: John Wilkes Booth.

Interesting Facts • In 1844 Abraham Lincoln was elected to the United States House of Representatives. • Abraham Lincolns grandfather owned more than 10,000 acres of land. • Abe ran for the State QuickTime™ and a Legislature of Illinois in1832 TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. and did not win… but he second time he ran for it he won! • I really like the quote about the Bible; “In regard to this great book, I have to say it is the best gift God has given to men. All the good the savior gave to the world was communicated through this book. A Little About Me Hi my name is Timothy Voloshin I am 10 years old. I was born on Oct. 6 1998.
