Honest Abe ~ Our 16th President

I was born in Kentucky to a poor family, and grew up teaching myself much of what I know.  

I was the first president to have a beard and my head is carved into Mount Rushmore.  

During my presidency, I issued the Emancipation Proclamation to free all slaves.  

During my presidency, the Union won the Civil War.  I was assassinated at Ford’s Theatre when I was shot by John Wilkes Booth.  

Who am I?
