'You're Abraham Lincoln's campaign manager. Your job is to convince the public to elect him sixteenth president of the US. Write an appeal to voters--to be printed in newspapers around the country--urging them to vote for him. "Sell" Lincoln to the public by emphasizing his qualifications: his character, background, achievements, and plans for the country's future.'

Is this alright?

Vote for Abraham Lincoln to be the next president of the United States and you won’t regret it! Lincoln was born in Hardin County, Kentucky on February 12, 1809. He moved to Indiana in 1816 and lived there the rest of his youth. His mother died when he was nine but he was very close to his stepmother who urged him to read. Lincoln worked as a clerk before joining the military. He ran for the state legislature and lost in 1832. Mr. Lincoln has studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1836. He served as a US Representative (1847-49). He was elected to the state legislature in 1854 but resigned to run for the US Senate.
If Abraham Lincoln does become president, this country will see remarkable progress: the wars will be stopped, and the people will have more rights. Moreover, this man is very kind and broad-minded; the peoples’ ideas will not be overseen with Mr. Lincoln as our president, so cast your vote today!
