Abraham Lincoln had failed failed in business at the of 21 and he was defeated in legislative race at the age 22 and fail again failed business at the age 24.His sweetheart die when he was 26 years old.His nervous breakdown at the age 27 and lost a congressional race at the age 34 and lost a senatorial race at the age 45,he had failed in an effort to become Vice President at the age 47,and lost a senatorial race at the age 49 and was elected President of the United State at the age 52.He was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Abraham Lincoln was born February 12, 1804 at the Sinking Spring farm in Hardin County, Kentucky. He joined his father Thomas, mother Nancy and a sister who would later die in Childbirth in a small one room cabin where he would spend the first years of his life.As a child and during his growing up years Lincoln would avoid hunting and fishing whenever possible because he had an aversion to killing animals. He was often referred to as lazy because of this and no doubt his aversion seemed unmanly to frontier families who depended on fish and game to survive.Lincoln hated the manual labor that frontier living demanded but accepted that responsibility even going so far as to turn over the wages he made away from the family farm to his father until he was 21.Robert Lincoln, the only son of Abraham Lincoln who would live to raise a family of his own was almost killed at a train station in New Jersey near the start of the Civil War. He slipped from a platform and would have fallen in front of the carriage had he not been grabbed by the collar and pulled to safety by Edwin Booth. Later Edwin’s brother would shoot and kill Abraham Lincoln.When Lincoln was elected president he was not even on the ballot of 10 Southern states and only won 2 of the 996 counties in the entire South.. During the Civil War Lincoln himself handpicked General Grant to replace McClellan but, only after assuring himself that Grant did not plan on running for president against him.So distraught was Lincoln over the division of the country and the civil war that he was often seen pacing the floors of the white house well after midnight.

I like your historical information about Abraham Lincoln. He is my inspirational source of life. Really he had successfully implemented the discrimination of black and white, which was the great social obstacles in America. Thank you for sharing and keep it up.
