This Week in Heroes: Abraham Lincoln

Hello everyone!

For our This Week In Heroes post, we have Abraham Lincoln. On April 14th, 1865, President Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth in Ford’s Theatre. He died the next morning at 7:44am.

President Lincoln is viewed by many as one of the top three presidents, if not the best, that the United States has ever had. He abolished slavery and he promoted freedom and equality through his focus on the Declaration of Independence.

He was our nation’s first president to be assassinated while in office.
