A couple of days after the birth of the first president of the United States, Lincoln signed the “Declaration of Independence,” which declared that the government of the Confederate States of America was founded on the principle of “liberty, equality, fraternity, and justice.”
But that’s not the full story.
In fact, Lincoln’s first birthday, January 6, 1862, is considered one of the most important days in American history.
Its importance extends beyond just the date, as it is one of only two days in history that does not fall on a Saturday, with a Sunday and a day of the week not occurring until the end of the calendar year.
On the first full moon of the year, the Lincoln Memorial was named in honor of the president.
It is the largest of its kind in the world, and, while it is a small memorial in its size, it is the most prominent one in the U.S. The name of the monument is an allusion to the fact that Lincoln was the first man to sign the Declaration of Independence and that the American Revolution began on the day of his birth.
“The name Lincoln has been used by many generations to honor the founding fathers of the country,” the website of the Lincoln Institute of Politics states.
“And the name is so much more than that.
It’s the name that has given us the strength and the courage to defend liberty and equality, and to build a nation where justice, peace and love can prevail.”

The day will begin with a ceremony in honor the president and his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, who are expected to attend.
“Our president is in his second term, and he is a father of the great nation and he has given so much of his life for this country,” Mary Todd said during the ceremony.
“This is a day he will always remember.”
Mary Todd also spoke about her father’s legacy.
“It’s time for the nation to remember and honor our father and to honor him for his life, for his achievements, for the role he played in our history,” she said.
“He will always be part of our history and a part of the history that we will always make.”
This is the second time Lincoln will be honored with a special event on his birthday, after his birth in 1863.
His birthday celebration was commemorated in 2013 with a speech by former Vice President Joe Biden, who was also the first African American vice president to address Congress.
During that speech, he spoke about the need to create a “safe space” for people of all colors in the country.
The speech was a clear reference to the Civil Rights Movement and the events that took place that year.
“There are certain people that live in America who feel entitled to certain things, that are entitled to things they don’t deserve,” Biden said.
He also spoke specifically about the history of the Ku Klux Klan, which was responsible for the lynching of four African American men.
“I believe that our country has to change,” he said.
