- from Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln died more than 150 years ago. Yet he is still one of the most respected figures in the world.
Many of his ideals came from books he read as a child. Books about Washington, Jefferson, and other leaders. They created “a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” It is for those ideals—learned by the boy, practiced by the man—that Abraham Lincoln is admired today.
