What chores did colonial girls do?

In colonial America (1600s,1700s) most boys did not have chores: they worked. If they lived on a farm they awoke .. got to work feeding animals, tending to crops, had breakfast, continued tending crops or animals, had supper, finished tending farm, washed up (if the day of the week to do so..) and headed for bed. Boys in the city tended to go to work in their father's shop learning his trade (blacksmith, carpenter, cobbler..) and had a similar schedule to the boys on the farm. Education was not universal; depending on the needs of the family, a child might never attend school. Modern day chores are often based around school as a job and any other necessary work scheduled around school.

How did Abraham Lincoln inspire other people?

Abraham Lincoln earliest influences were his parents. They needed his help on the farm, and as such, his time in school was very minimum. Thus, his parents encouraged him to be an avid reader. Two of his most valued books were on George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. After his mother died and his father remarried, Lincoln came to admire and respect his step mother.His education was sporadic as a kid. He studied under Zachariah Riney, Caleb Hazel, Andrew Crawford (who loaned him Life of Washington) and James Swaney.When he was getting into politics, Henry Clay was his mentor and dear friend.He met and became friends with Cyrus Edward when he served in the military. Edward later became an Illinois State Senator.
