Description

Abraham Lincoln

In November 1863, a great number of people attended a memorial service in order to commemorate those who had died in the Civil War. Soon a tall middle-aged man wearing whiskers stood on the platform and began to deliver an address.
"We should make this country a country of freedom and equality so that government of the people, by the people, for the people should take root on this earth."
The people shouted for joy all at once. The man was Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States who emancipated the slaves in the country.
"Wah! Wah!"
A baby's cry resounded throughout a small cabin in Kentucky in the United States in February 1809. People of the village went to the cabin to celebrate the birth of the baby.
The baby's father lifted him and said,
"I'll name him Abraham Lincoln after his grandfather. He'll surely be a great man like his grandfather."
Lincoln set up a new happy home after marrying a beautiful woman called Mary Todd. And he was elected to US Congress some time later.
"Now I want to make my political activity more beneficial to the people."
Lincoln left for Washington, the district of politics with his family.
Lincoln ran as a Republican candidate for presidency in a presidential election and grew whiskers after receiving a letter from a little lady called Grace. His whiskers improved his image much better. At last Lincoln was elected the 16th President of the United States at the age of 51.
As President, Lincoln insisted more strongly that the slaves should be emancipated.
After all a war broke out between the people of the northern regions of the United States and the people of the southern regions. It was the Civil War.
The war lasted for a long time until the military of the northern regions won a victory. But Lincoln didn't hold the military of the southern regions responsible for anything wrong. And the unfairly treated black slaves were emancipated.
After the end of the Civil War, there were rumors of a plot to assassinate Lincoln. In April 1865, he attended an event held at the Ford Theater. Suddenly there was a loud bang from a gun and Lincoln fell down.
Next morning Lincoln died at the age of 56.
