Biography #2: Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States of America. He is considered one of the best presidents ever, along with George Washington. Lincoln is most famous for his signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, which ended slavery in the USA. Although the news did not reach everyone right away, the Emancipation Proclamation is one of the most important things in USA history. His Vice President was Hannibal Hamlin. Andrew Johnson replaced Hamlin in 1865. Lincoln served as president from 1861-1865, before being assassinated by John Wilkes Booth. He was 56 years old when he died at 7:22 AM on April 15, 1865.

Dear Jaden,

Great post about President Lincoln. It was nice to see you write about such a serious topic. I agree with you that he was a very important president. There was a recent movie made about his life. Have you seen it?

I hope you enjoy your summer.

I'm glad you enjoyed my post about Abraham Lincoln. I thought that maybe since I've researched Lincoln, I would right a post about him. He is probably the most important president besides Washington if you look at what they have done. He is arguably the best. I have not seen Lincoln, but I have it at my house.

Have a good summer,
