Today is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. He was born February 12, 1809 in a one-room log cabin on Sinking Spring Farm near Hodgenville, Kentucky. He was elected the 16th President of the United States on November 6, 1860. Although Lincoln’s faith was very private, he did quote often from the Bible. Two of his four sons died before he was assassinated. It is said that the loss of his son, Edward in 1850 drove him to express more of a need to depend on God.
