Abraham Lincoln Report
Hi, my name is Chris. This is my Abraham Lincoln research project report. It is very informational, and enjoyable. Okay then, well, happy reading.
Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809 in a log cabin in Hardin county Kentucky. His nickname was Honest Abe. His father was Thomas Lincoln. His mother was Nancy Hanks Lincoln. He became the sixteenth president of the United States of America. At age of nine, his mother died on October 5, 1818. Just after the end of the war, he was shot on April 14, 1865, by an actor and supporter of the confederate army named John Wilkes Booth. He died of the wound the next day, after laying across the street from Ford’s theater in a coma for nine hours. He was the first U.S. president to be *assassinated.

(*def: shot and killed)

Abraham Lincoln helped hold the country together during the Civil War. He helped the union win the Civil War. The Civil War started when confederate troops fired on Fort Sumter, South Carolina. The Civil War started because eleven slavery states broke away from the United States of America, and called themselves the Confederate States of America. Lincoln also gave the Gettysburg Address, a speech in dedication of soldiers killed in the bloody Battle of Gettysburg. Lincoln also made an Emancipation Proclamation, which freed all slaves in the southern states, but not in border states. He also supported the thirteenth 1.amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, which finally 2.abolished slavery in the United States of America FOREVER!!!

(1.def: change to a document)

(2.def: outlaw)
Lincoln’s role in civil rights was important mostly because he outlawed slavery in all the current states and all the states coming along later. The main point of this research paper-report is to tell all you readers that Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves. His Emancipation Proclamation freed the southern slaves. And the thirteenth amendment to the Constitution freed all the slaves. Basically, it was a *momentous event in time when Lincoln abolished all slavery.

(*def: important)
