Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States of America, was one of its greatest presidents. Best remembered for abolishing the unjust practice of slavery, Lincoln had to win the American Civil War against the seceding confederate states of the South, to do so. He was eventually assassinated. Lincoln, a lawyer before he entered politics, was a witty and eloquent speaker whose speeches were easily understood by all. This book relates the story of this compassionate statesman, from his humble beginnings in a log cabin to the highest office in America.
