The Truth About Abraham Lincoln

Published by on Jan 27, 2013

What is it about Abraham Lincoln? His face is on the penny, the five dollar bill, and Mount Rushmore. There is a Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., and the capital city of Nebraska is named for him. To this day, most students memorize Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and each year the Republican Party holds hundreds of "Lincoln Days" around the nation. … Read this article
