I am not an author or a historian; rather I am a former American history teacher who enjoys researching Abraham Lincoln's life and accomplishments. If you have a specific Lincoln question that you would like me to research for you, please e-mail me. The Abraham Lincoln Research Site is intended for use by students, teachers, schools, and anyone with an interest in introductory information on Abraham Lincoln.
