It’s February 12, and Abraham Lincoln was born on this date in 1809. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is located in Springfield, Illinois, and we encourage you to visit there if you are ever in the Land of Lincoln. American School has a bust of Abraham Lincoln in our library, which is named after Mary McKeown. She served American School and its students for 75 years, and so Mary was familiar with so many of our high school correspondence courses. You can learn about Abraham Lincoln by taking our paper-based United States History course, but if you prefer to learn about Abraham Lincoln online, you can take our online United States History course. Each course is worth one unit of credit and would help you earn a high school diploma at home. Get started by enrolling today. All of us look forward to you making American School your distance education high school.
