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.

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.

Booth, the assasin, was from the south. He hoped to gain southern revenge from Lincoln. He was unhappy about the outcome of the Civil War and hoped to spark a change in the fi…nal outcome of the war. hope that this helps
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.

no ieda NEW RESPONDENT Lincoln assassination provoked in the North a wave of indignation and the raise of sentiment of vengeance towards the Confederates. The Radical Republic…an took the upper hand in the Congress and in the government, making impossible to carry a policy of appeasement and help towards the defeated as wished by Lincoln.
Lincoln's mother died when he was nine. I can not imagine that her death had any direct influence on his decision to run for President. He ran because he had made a campaign f…or the Senate which attracted national attention because of his debates with his opponent Stephan Douglas. BY participating in these debates and he perhaps accidentally laid the groundwork for a presidential campaign.
