Lincoln's Birthday

On February 12th 1809 Abraham Lincoln was born - in a log cabin, measuring sixteen by eighteen fight, comprising a single room. He grew up to become of the greatest Presidents of the United States. Amongst many accomplishments he is known for his short speech delivered at the cemetery in Gettysburg.

The concluding words are worth reflecting upon, and striving for - that
government of the people,
by the people,
for the people,
shall not perish from the earth.
