Some people are inspired to have Abraham Lincoln dolls or other collectibles, as a way of remembering his life and legacy. Here is a look at one of the most famous pics of Abraham Lincoln, along with his family and his death which happened over eighty years ago.
The Civil War was fought between the Union troops and the Confederates, who were made up of former slave owners and their loyalists. Abraham Lincoln was born in 1812 in Ireland. He moved to a farm near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania where he would learn about farming and management. One of his more well-known quotes was “I have a dream.”
When Abraham Lincoln was born, his family had six children, as well as four servants. His wife was pregnant during his birth, which he was very thankful for. His family had four boys and a girl. Abraham Lincoln was very close to his brother Robert, who was the family’s gardener and mechanic.
One day while the family was tending their crops, Lincoln took a saw and cut his finger as a result of accidentally cutting his thumb on a nail trap. This injury caused him tremendous pain and as a result, he never fully recovered from it. As a result of his injuries, Lincoln was in constant pain and had difficulty walking and talking.
When he was a teenager, Lincoln went to live in England with his older brother, Robert. They became very close over the years and when Robert died, Lincoln took to his brother’s funeral as if he were his own beloved brother. Many people believed that this was the cause of his eventual death. Lincoln enjoyed his time there and was extremely disappointed when the English fled the country.
While living in England, Lincoln had the pleasure of meeting many notable figures. One of his friends was Dr. Seward, whom he greatly respected. When his family became ill and their physician, Dr. William Sears, could not work with them, Lincoln took his sister Nancy with him and visited her often in the hospital. She became his closest friend. After his family lived out of the home they had left, they had to move back to New York City, where Lincoln lived with his mother.
During this period of his life, Lincoln became friendly with another man, Ben Corbett. Their relationship with each other was friendly and cordial and after a while, Lincoln began to confide in this man about his family and his childhood. Lincoln often confided in Corbett about his dreams, his plans for college, his love of his cousin Mary and his desire to become a doctor. Later on, when the Civil War came, Lincoln wrote to Corbett to ask him to join the war effort. He asked Corbett to give his support because he knew that it was a great sacrifice for his family to make, but Lincoln knew that it would mean so much to his friend.
Many people today, feel that Abraham Lincoln was a great man who accomplished many great things during his lifetime. All of his children that were born during his lifetime are full of courage, determination, and love. He also leaves behind many beautiful legacy and many of his friends are still living on. It is very sad to know that he did not live to see his dreams come true. His family is now a large part of American history and we have many pictures of Abraham Lincon to see.
