This review of mine is related to none other than ''ABRAHAM LINCOLN'', a person who remained as President of U.S.A. Actually, I've heard a lot about him even that much that his soul is still there somewhere inside the ''White House'' But who knows about it better than God.


I would like to share whatever I collected about him.


FROM LOG CABIN TO WHITE HOUSE


This story belongs to a very poor child, who was simply a backwoods boy, but by his efforts, he became the President of U.S.A. Not only once but twice, he was elected the President of U.S.A.


The name of this poor, little but laborious boy was Abraham Lincoln.


Abraham Lincoln was born in 1809, the year which also saw the birth of Darwin and Tennyson. He descended from a quaker family of English origin who once resided in Pennsylvania. The phrase ?From log cabin to White House? has for a long time represented not only the romance of Lincoln?s career but also the chance of any little backwoods of U.S.A. His parents had a rough wandering existence. They went to west of America and they tried their luck at one settlement after another.


In all his life, he had less than twelve month?s schooling. He taught himself everything from the very few, but good books his family possessed. The books were Aesop?s Fables, Pilgrims progress. Bible and Robinson Crusoe. He read and re-read them until their language became a part of him. That is why his speeches in later dignified language which lifts him at once, out of the commonplace and gives him a unique position in American literature.


Lincoln did not have a very striking personality. He was an odd boy, tall and lanky who hated cruelty. He could not bear to kill any living creature and he hated the way in which the slaves were made to suffer.


Very early, he broke away from his family and started to make his own career in the state of Illinois. He began as a store keeper and after many odd jobs; he became a lawyer clerk, until at last he settled down as a lawyer himself in Springsfield. He soon became a politician as he was elected a member of Illinois State Legislature. It was a rough but exciting found for a future statesman.


After a few years, he became the President of U.S.A. ?Well? said one of the delegates who visited Lincoln ?We might have chosen a handsomer article but I doubt whether a better?.


In those days, a civil war broke out between North America and South America. The north wanted that slavery should not exist any more while the South wanted its existence. Although Lincoln knew that ?A house divided against itself could not stand?. Yet he did not take care of the threats of the people of South America.


The commander of the South was General Lee. At last, he surrendered and Lincoln was again elected the President of U.S.A.


Five days after General Lee?s surrender, and before peace was declared, Abraham Lincoln was shot at as he sat in his box at the theatre, by a young and crazy actor named John Willies Booth who was an embittered partisan of the South.


Lincoln died the following morning his work still incomplete ?Now? said one of his friends as the end came, ?He belongs to the ages?.
