Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12th, 1809. His begins were humble, his education basically what he taught himself and he wasn’t the happiest man on earth. He had a sense of right from wrong and used that to his advantage but his best quality may have been that he listened to others. It doesn’t mean that he always agreed, but he listened. Since his roots came from the common man he could relate to them and never thought himself better than anyone else. Lincoln was shot on April 14th, 1865 as the Civil War was winding down. In death, he may have accomplished even more than he did in life. We celebrate his birthday as much for who he was as what he became.
