Abraham Lincoln

by Elliott from Greenwood

Hi! My name is Elliott. I think a hero is a person who makes a difference in the world. That is why Abraham Lincoln is my hero.

He was born in Kentucky in 1805 and mostly lived in Illinois before he became president. When he was president, he ended slavery and led the country through the Civil War. He died in 1865.

Because he helped our country and was president, that is why Abraham Lincoln is my hero. Who is yours?
