Abraham Lincoln Quotes...

Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) served as the 16th president of the United States of America from 1861 until his assassination in 15th April 1865.

Lincoln grew up in a poor family. Despite being poor, he managed to become a lawyer and later started his law practices. When he elected as a 16th president of the United States, he led the nation through one of the bloodiest American Civil War. Lincoln not only preserved the nation from the political crisis but also strengthened the federal government, and modernized the U.S. economy.

Lincoln earned a remarkable reputation as a president. He was one of America’s most influential presidents. Lincoln played a historical role as a savior for slaves throughout the nation and in assuring their freedom.

Abraham Lincoln was the tallest president at 6 feet 4 inches tall. He dreamed of a strong and happy America, but unfortunately, he would not live to see his country rebuild. On 14th April 1865, he was shot by John Wilkes Booth while attending a play at the Ford Theater in Washington D.C. The very next day i.e. 15th April 1865, he left the world.
