There were many Americans who had very ordinary lives before they changed the history of the United States and became famous. You may be surprised by the lives of some of the people. Abraham Lincoln worked as a handyman building fences, harvesting corn, and plowing fields. He became the 16th President of the United States and is known for signing the Emancipation Proclamation, which ended slavery. Franklin D. Roosevelt began his career as a member of the New York State Senate. He is known for having the longest presidency, which lasted twelve years. During his presidency, he led the country through the Great Depression and World War II. Martin Luther King, Jr., was a Baptist minister. He became the leader of the Civil Rights Movement and is famous for his “I Have a Dream. . .” speech at the March on Washington.

Women also played a part in changing American history. Sacagawea was a Shoshone Indian who became an interpreter for Lewis and Clark. She used her skills to help guide the expedition across the United States. Susan B. Anthony started her career as a schoolteacher but is known for her role as a suffragist. As a suffragist, she fought to give women the right to vote, and eventually she succeeded. Rosa Parks was a seamstress who is known for her decision to not give up her bus seat. Her actions started the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which was a pivotal incident in the Civil Rights Movement. All of these people changed American history, but they started out as ordinary citizens just like you and me!
