Abraham Lincoln is a hero for me because he was the president that took slavery out. I admire his work. I think he was one of the best presidents. If it wasn't for Abraham, I think we would still have slavery now.
In many cities Abraham Lincoln is commemorated by statues or by the five dollar bill. In the capital of Nebraska they built a monument of Abraham Lincoln sitting down. Abraham's name is almost recognized all over the world. Abraham is the only president that appears on an airplane mail stamp.
