Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln

The movie Lincoln focuses on the struggle for the passing of the 13th Amendment to abolish slavery. If you were Lincoln, what would you say to Congress to persuade them to pass the 13th Amendment?

Abe as a Boy

This photo was sent in via email to the Gallery along with the following words. Do you think this could be Abe?
"I would love to share a photo of our beloved president Abraham Lincoln that I was blessed to find in an old album 10 years ago.
The photo is a daguerreotype, 2-1/2"x3-1/4". it is a mirror image.
I had the photo authenticated. One person who saw the photo in person was Abe Lincoln expert from Denville, New Jersey Dr. Jerome R. Corsi. He said it was a very young Abe. I also had a forensic detective look at it. Mr. Bob Garrett CSCSA, CLPE, FFS New Jersey State Division International Association for Identification. He said all facial characteristics match. If you see the photo in person you see that Mr. Lincoln was very tall and you can see his mole, crooked lip and disfigured jaw. One eye was smaller and one ear was higher than the other. Still he was handsome and elegant to me."

Poems for President Lincoln

This poem was written by one of our readers, Beth for her son Kyle’s 3rd grade class at Livingston Elementary School in Spotsylvania County, Virginia. Can you write a short poem about Abe Lincoln? Write it in your word processor, then copy and paste it into the comment window!

Mr. Lincoln died in Ford’s Theatre,
While attending a play,
No one could have even guessed,
The events that would unfold that sad day,

It was John Wilkes Booth, an actor,
Who didn’t want President Lincoln alive,
He shot and fatally killed him,
It was April 15th in the year 1865.

Now his face is on the penny,
So if you see one, stop and pick it up,
Put it in your pocket,
Maybe Abe will bring you good luck!

He’s on the five dollar bill too,
So if you really get to thinkin’,
Instead of giving someone a "High Five"
You can give them a "High Lincoln"!

Honest Abe

When you hear the words Old Abe, Honest Abe , The Little Giant Killer and Abraham Lincoln, what comes to your mind? What do you think of the great man and what he did for our country?
