Honest Abe's Birthday - February 12th

February 12th marks the birthday of President Abraham Lincoln. He was born all the way back in 1809, this year will mark 212 years since his birth. (I found that to be a bit of interesting trivia as 212 is also the date). Lincoln has been brought up many times recently, so while I’m sure all kiddos know of Honest Abe, there is so so much to be learned about him so there is plenty we can focus on!
