Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809. #Lincoln is remembered as one of our nation’s most revered #presidents. Today, connections to our 16th president are felt across the country. There are six units in the National Park Service wholly or partially dedicated to Abraham Lincoln: Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park, Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Ford's Theatre National Historic Site, Lincoln Memorial, and Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Numerous other sites also have Lincoln connections.
