While we were there we went to the birth place of Abraham Lincoln it was really cool I learned that when he was little he saw a group of slaves in shackles walking by and was very ifluensed by that experies. he was born on sinking springs creek. He loved telling stories and loved learning and practising his alphebet. he had a older sister names Sarah and a little brother named Thomas after his father that only lived a few days. His mother died of the milk diseas. He became a lawer and then president. he did many great things while president like ending the civil was and slavery. There is also a new statue of Abraham Lincoln on the Blevedere in Louisville Kentucky. I went there to see it with my grandma, grandpa and cousins.
