Nguyen, Vietnam- Level 3


In our previous lesson about the history of America we talked about Washington. Now we are going to talk about Lincoln. Here is the information about him in brief.

He couldn’t go to school because he was poor. He’s the only president of America born penniless. He was about 1,94m tall.

Lincoln lived a life of books. His brother died in the Civil War. His life was complicated and he lost his job selling things many times.

Even while a president, things didn’t go smoothly. He was a peasant but rose to be the nicest president of America. He was killed while watching a play in the theatre. His murderer was John Wilkes Booth. Lincoln and Kennedy are the only presidents killed in public.
