Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln was the sixteenth president of the United States. He issued the Emancipation Proclamation that freed the slaves. He was assassinated (killed) in 1865. We celebrate his birthday on February 12 with a holiday.

The Lincoln Monument (right) in Washington, D. C. was built in honor of his memory.
