- ABRAHAM LINCOLN - From the Log Cabin to the White House - A New Birth Of Freedom - A Graphic Novel
DetailsOne of the most courageous and esteemed presidents of the United States of America, Abraham Lincoln is known mainly for abolishing slavery and his leadership during the Civil War. He grew up in a single-room log cabin on the Sinking Spring Farm in Hardin County, Kentucky. His mother died when he was nine, and his relationship with his father was often strained. He had an insatiable desire to learn, which his stepmother nurtured by encouraging young Abe to read. Though he had only a year of formal education, he could read any book he got his hands on. Lincoln was admitted to the Illinois bar in 1836, and later became a congressman for the same state. He served as president from March 1861 until his assassination at the hands of John Wilkes Booth in 1864. This book tells the story of a young boy who grew up to become one of the most important leaders in American history.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Lewis Aaron Helfand is one of Campfire’s most prolific writers, having scripted many of our biographies, classics and original titles.
