From the Publisher
Look into the life of Abraham:
Abraham had a strong work ethic from the start!
Abraham always wished he could have had more schooling. He worked hard on his own, though. He copied sections from books to practice writing and then memorized them. Paper was hard to get, so when he ran out he’d write on boards.
He made speeches about his strong values that gained attention
Abraham made a speech against slavery that became famous. He said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” He meant the country couldn’t be strong if it was split between free states and slave states. It had to be one or the other. It was clear that he believed all states should be free states.
Abraham earned his role as president
Southern slaveholders hated that Abraham won the presidential election. They believed he was going to free the enslaved people, making it harder to run their farms. Abraham wasn’t officially president yet when seven slave states declared they were their own country. He believed separating from the Union was against the United States Constitution.
He’s still considered by many to be the most influential president
On January 31, 1865, Congress passed the 13th Amendment, ending slavery forever. Everything Abraham believed in since he was a child was coming together.
