What caused Abraham Lincoln's mother's death?
In 1818 an attack of milk sickness struck the Little Pigeon Creek community. This is a disease contracted by drinking milk from cows which have grazed on poisonous white snakeroot. Both of the Sparrows died, and Thomas Lincoln made the coffins for them. Nancy took ill also. For a week she struggled, but she knew she was failing. Dennis Hanks, Nancy's cousin, recalled that she called the children to her bedside and asked them to be good and kind to their father, to each other, and to the world. On October 5, 1818, Nancy Hanks Lincoln passed away at the age of 34. In later years, Abraham would recall helping to carve pegs for his mother's coffin. Thomas Lincoln hauled the coffin, which was made of green pine, on a sled to the top of a thickly wooded hill and buried Nancy without a formal funeral service. Several months later, the Reverend David Elkins preached a funeral sermon above Nancy's grave.

He was born on February 12, 1809, at Sinking Spring Farm in Hardin County, Kentucky, in a one room log cabin. He died at the Peterson House on 453 Tenth Street (now 516 Tent…h Street), a boarding house owned by William Peterson, which was just across the street from Ford's theatre, where Lincoln was shot. The date was April 14, 1865. The President was placed on a bed in the front parlor, a doctor was called, and examined the President but could do much for him, medically, as the bullet was embedded deep in his brain. The doctor did try to insure he was as comfortable as he could be. President Lincoln died the following morning at approximately 7:22am, on April 15, 1865.

I would call his personal life difficult. As a child and young man his family had very little money so he had few advantages and he did not get along with his father. His wife… was difficult although bright and from a connected family she probably was not much of a comfort for him. He lost one son, when he was a toddler, and another died at age 11. He was quite successful as a lawyer and that must have helped his frame of mind, but his attempts to run for public office were mostly failed until, of course he was nominated and elected president.
The Lincoln's dog in Springfield was Fido, and in the White House they had a dog named Jip. Fido was the first dog of a president that was photographed. The name Fido mean…s "faithful". Fido was a floppy-eared, rough-coated, yellowish colored dog .
It was the death of a very important U.S. president regarding issues with the Civil War. The Civil War had very mixed emotions.

His two favorite desserts were: his wife's White Almond Cake, (Mary's recipe, is named, appropriately "Mary Todd Lincoln's White Almond Cake".), and Apple Pie.
Booth shot the President, in the State Box, jumped over the opening ledge of the state box, and was aimed to land upon the stage, below. As he was jumping out of the box and o…nto the stage, Booth caught the spur of his boot on one of the flags, which were hung underneath the opening of the box. When the spur of his boot was snagged, this caused him to miss his landing, and his jump, resulted into a fall onto the stage. He then proceeded to flee from the theater, where he had already arranged for a rented horse from the local stable, (a stagehand by the name of Edmund Spangler who Booth had befriended, had been waiting with a horse at around 9:30, at the back of the theater.) Booth then rode out of Washington DC and met up with fellow conspirator David Herald, in Maryland. They stopped at Lloyd's tavern that was leased from Mary Surratt in Surrattsville, had a drink and headed to Dr. Samuel Mudd's home. Booth needed medical attention for his leg, and the two arrived at Dr. Mudd's home at around 4am. Dr. Mudd determined that Booth's leg had been broken and made a splint for it, as well as, a pair of crutches for Booth. The two at Dr. Mudd's home for about a day, and then Booth hired a man to lead the two to Samuel Cox's house. Colonel Samuel Cox had harbored sympathies for the confederate cause. Cox led the two to a man named Thomas Jones who led Booth and Herald through the Zekiah Swamp, and eventually across the Potomac River, over approximately a 5-6 day period. Herald and Booth were in Virginia, and made their way into Port Royal, Virginia. On April 26, 1865, the Union Calvary had followed leads that two men fitting Booth and Herald's description were seen near the Rappahannock River, in Port Royal, Virginia. At approximately 2am, the Calvary eventually made their way to a tobacco farm owned by a Richard Garrett. Herald and Booth were sleeping in the farmer's barn. A Lieutenant detective from the Calvary yelled out to the two to surrender. After a few moments, Booth said he'd never surrender, then a few minutes later, Booth yelled out "Oh, Captain, there's a man in here who wants to surrender awful bad.", and Herald's voice then could be heard saying that he wanted to surrender. Herald came out slowly, and was slammed to the ground by the Calvary, and subsequently tied to a tree. Still Booth would not come out. Using straw and brush, the cavalry set the barn on fire. Booth was visible to the soldiers because the barn was full of cracks and knotholes. Sergeant Boston Corbett fired at Booth, hitting him in the neck. Booth was not dead but had been paralyzed. He was then dragged from the burning barn, and the Calvary moved Booth a couple of times, finally placing him on the porch of the farmer's house. Booth died at about 7am, on the same morning, April 26, 1865. The author that wrote the above did a very good job of presenting the North's version of the story. But, there is another version. John Wilkes Booth was not killed. People in Washington wanted this incident closed to calm the nation. When an look-a-like was killed, a cover-up occurred. Some people consider John Wilkes Booth a hero. His story goes like this: President Jefferson Davis and General Stonewall Jackson summoned Secret Agent Lt. Colonel John Wilkes Booth. Their purpose was to give John Wilks Booth the Congressional Medal of Honor and to promote him to full Colonel. Booth served under General Jackson. Booth is credited with the confiscation of needed medical supplies from the North and successfully delivering wagon loads of foodstuffs and clothing into the hands of the South. He also supplied secret information from the North to General Jackson. On May 2, 1863, John Wilkes Booth would learn of his most important assignment. He was to capture or kill Abraham Lincoln. Booth was given $50,000 for expenses and another $50,000 to begin a new life. The next time Jefferson Davis would hear from Booth was by letter. Booth wrote that he was well and living in Mexico. It was another man, fearing for his life because he resembled Booth, that also fled Washington. That man was later killed in a barn and identified as Booth.
A major effect was that the relations between the North and South worsened because Lincoln was all for becoming one nation again with no hard feelings but the othe…r Northerners wanted to force the south to pay for what they did.
Mr.Lincoln was watching the play " Our American Cousin" at Ford's Theater, Actor John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln in the head . Booth then jumped off the balcony and his spur ca…ught on the bunting hanging off of it. He broke his leg and limped off stage to a waiting horse. Lincoln was carried across the street to a room on the second floor of a boarding house. He will linger until the morning when he dies of his wounds.
