The “Life of Lincoln” series is an abbreviated biography of President Abraham Lincoln that Junior Dispatch and the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association has created in an effort to celebrate the United States of America’s 16th president.

This guide features all of the chapters, posters and teacher’s guides, plus a few additional items of interest.


Each of these chapters includes a “Question of the Day,” where readers can talk about history and its effects on modern life. To answer them, just leave a comment or e-mail your response to juniordispatch@yorkdispatch.com or send it by regular mail to:
