Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809, in
Hodgenville. He was the 16th president of the United
States from 1861 to 1865, during the Civil War.
He was from the Republican Party and wanted to abolish
slavery (abolitionist), and that's why the War began with
Southern States, who were pro-slavery.
He was a good leader both as a president and managing
the war. He replaced his generals multiple times to find
good ones to lead the army in the war.
