Abraham was born on February the 12th 1809 in the wild countryside, known as the backwoods in Kentucky. When he was aged of nine unfortunately Abraham’s mother died. Young Abraham worked alongside his father on the farm. He went to school for less than a year. He also loved to read books and sometimes walked long distances to borrow a book, because books were very rare back then. Abraham left his dad’s farm when he was twenty – two.
He married a lady named Mary Todd and studied law. Unfortunately a man shot him in the head and the next day (on April 15th 1865) he died .
