February 12, 1809 was the birth of the future president candidate of the United States.Abraham Lincoln was born in a log cabin raised by Thomas and Nancy Lincoln. They managed in their humble one room cabin in Hodgenville, Kentucky. In their rural abode they suffered through poverty; Thomas as a carpenter and Nancy as a Seamstress.
Unfortunately Abraham's mother died of a common illness labeled as milk sickness. It was tragic for Lincoln to experience as a nine year old, since she had lead to so much in his future due to her guidance. Lincoln’s father, Thomas, later then married another named as Sarah Bush. Even though he missed his mom Lincoln bonded with with her and was often encouraging in education by her.
