Abraham Lincoln

What does a President need to do to get his image on the five-dollar bill, the penny, and Mount Rushmore? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby review the impressive resume of Abraham Lincoln! Follow the life of the 16th President of the United States, starting with his birth in a log cabin. Learn about Lincoln’s eloquence as a speaker, from his performance in the Lincoln-Douglas debates to his famous Gettysburg Address. Witness how his quest to abolish slavery resulted in the Emancipation Proclamation, and how his leadership during the Civil War successfully saved a nation from being split in two.
