Abraham Lincoln was born in a one-room log cabin in 1809. It looked like he would be a simple farmer, but Abe loved books and read anything he could get his hands on. In time, he became a successful lawyer and started getting attention as a politician. Known as a brilliant speaker, Abe impressed enough people to become the 16th president in 1861. Unfortunately, the country was heading for civil war. The issue of slavery divided the North and South, and soon President Lincoln faced the greatest emergency in American history. Despite facing many personal tragedies and dealing with one problem on the battlefields after another, Lincoln stood tall and strong-and saved the union. This graphic retelling of Lincoln's remarkable life will fascinate young readers.
