How should I structure a preparation outline for a commemorative speech on Abraham Lincoln?

I’m doing a commemorative speech on Abraham Lincoln and was wondering if anyone had some tips as to how I could lay it all out. Like, what to put for the introduction, body, and conclusion. Any help would be AMAZING.

Start with a statement like “Abraham Lincoln was one of the United States’ most honored and most troubled presidents”.

The body might include something brief on his early life and his education, then on his career prior to becoming president, his wife and children, then on his presidency and how he acted/reacted to the Civil War.

Conclude with a synopsis of the rest of the speech “In spite of the hardships of his personal life, Lincoln continues to be thought of as blah blah blah.

Hope that helps a little.
