Happy Birthday Mr. Lincoln
Today and every year on February 8th Abraham Lincoln's birthday is celebrated. Why?? Well, it is the date of this great mans birthday and a time to celebrate his life and great things he did. The 16th president from the great state of Illinois was often known "Honest Abe" He was born in the wilderness of Hardin County Kentucky on February 12, 1809. Abe was in his 50s when he became president of the United States a country that would soon wage war among itself. Lincoln believed that he could help save the nation and stop the secession of the Southern states. During his time at presidency he would leave many great memories including the Gettysburg Address and the Emancipation Proclamation as well as put an end to slavery in the U.S.
Abraham Lincoln was born in a log cabin. It is a great time to have some family fun and create a mini log cabin out of pretzels. Abe Lincoln was famous for wearing a top hat. The cookie and candy top hat snack treat is fun to make out of a Keebler fudge stripe cookie, rolo candy and chocolate icing.
