Abraham Lincoln Research Site

Top Subjects:  Animals   Art/Architecture   Geography   Health   History   Math   Reading   Science
Resource:Abraham Lincoln Research Site
Provider:Abraham Lincoln Research Site
Summary:Age Range: 10-18 (Grades 5-12, with parental supervision). Although we celebrate Presidents' Day on February 18th this year, today, February 12th, is President Abraham Lincoln's actual birthday.
Description:Since we focus on science today, we found some interesting tidbits on this site about Abraham Lincoln related to science that you might not have known:
  • Abraham Lincoln is the only president to have a patent - a Lincoln-devised device for freeing ships that had run aground in shallow water.

  • Find out how an 11-year-old girl convinced Lincoln to grow a beard.

  • Did you know that two of Lincoln's sons, Tad and Willie, kept goats as pets at the White House?

  • See photos of Lincoln's beloved mutt, Fido.

  • Then, get out your hankies and read the touching account of Lincoln's encounter with three orphaned kittens on the eve of the final military advance of the Civil War.

  • Dry your eyes and read all about how a turkey, intended for dinner, became a presidential pet!
Make sure you check out the rest of the site - it is just so beautifully developed, with such thorough and engaging commentary, photographs, primary sources, and wonderful anecdotes about Lincoln.
