Title: Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln
  • Power point by Nicholas Geehan

  • Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12 1809
  • Abraham Lincoln died on April 14 1867
  • Lincoln was born in Notin Creek, Kentucky.
  • Abraham is most famous for being the 16th
    president of the USA.
  • I chose Abraham Lincoln because he's famous and I
    thought it would be interesting to read about an
    older more fascinating person back in the 1800
    hundreds and while Im learning about an older
    president I'm also learning about the 1800s

Abrahams Childhood
In Notin Creek where Abraham learned to walk,
Abraham was already about four years of age when
he moved out of Notin Creek and into Knob Creek
and only one month after being there Abe already
liked to fish. Abe had just been notified that he
had a baby brother on the way but only a few days
of being alive the baby passed away.? when Abe
was 7 he moved to Indiana and built a house with
his family. Abe when he was 10 his mother passed
away from the disease called milk sickness and
Abraham as lonely as he was would wander in the
woods and pick up logs to chop later on. But it
wasnt all bad Abraham had a very nice step
mother named Sarah Bush Jonson and Abraham and
Sarah were very close. Abraham loved to read
books but the only book he owned was the bible
and he knew every word of it. Abraham Lincoln
also loved outdoors he worked for a homesteader
chopping wood in the cool morning air. Abraham
also had an older sister named sally.
Teen Years
  • After Abraham was chopping wood for old
    homesteaders, Abraham went to church when he was
    only about fourteen years old with his sister
    sally and his father but not for the community
    praying but as a job sweeping out church and
    lighting/supplying it with candles. When Abraham
    was about fifteen Abraham went to school to learn
    how to write letters, words, sentences, and
    paragraphs. When Abraham was sixteen he only went
    to school for about a year then dropped out
    because he learned all he needed to.
  • But after Abraham learned to read he loved to
    tell jokes to friends and family. Also when he
    was sixteen he was already six feet tall! Talk
    about your tall future president!

Abrahams Adulthood
After Abrahams teen tears he had some very
fascinating jobs like when he twenty two he ran
a store called the Buckhorn Tavern and he was a
deputy for the sheriffs department. Also he
worked in post office in the pony express witch
is like the mail lady but other than a mail van
its a horse drawn chariot filled with news
letters from all around Illinois. Although a fine
worker, Abraham was spacious that one time when
he had a birthday party for his wife and he
invited over 500 guests to there two story house!
After that unbelievable move Abraham ran for
president and won!!!! And in 1861 he went on to
the white house to be president. In 1866 Lincoln
signed a bill that banned slavery for ever! On
April 14 1866 Abraham went to Fords Theater to
watch a play called Our American Cousin and
later that even Abraham Lincoln was shot by a man
named John Wilkes Booth( The government offered
a 100,000 dollar reward for booth dead or alive,
but Booth was never found

  • Abraham Lincoln
  • 1809 to 1867

  • Abraham was the 16th president of the united
    states that was loyal to his family and every
    one around him, Abraham was the one who made
    slavery illegal every were. Abe's name was honest
    Abe and know you know why.

Abrahams Party
  • In the story I read a story when Abraham planned
    a party, know it doesnt seam bad Abe decided he
    was going to invite a few extra guests to his
    wife's surprise party and by a few extra I mean
    About 500 extra!! Talk about your big party!

Three Questions
  • If you didnt run for president what other career
    choices would you take?
  • if you could go back in time what would change in
    your life?
  • What's your biggest secret?
