Abraham Lincoln

Written by: Cherie Durbin

"Abraham Lincoln" is a children's song, sung to the tune of "The Battle Hymn of the 
Republic".

Abraham Lincoln was our sixteenth president, you see-
His Emancipation Proclamation declared millions of slaves free
And though he was assassinated
Abe's spirit shines today
On every penny that is minted in the U.S.A..

Bonus activity: Abraham Lincoln had a humble beginning, born to poor farmers in a 
one-room cabin in Kentucky. Do you think Abe Lincoln would approve of his profile 
being on the penny? Discuss why or why not.
