Excerpt from A Life of Lincoln: For Boys In 1861, more than two thousand years afterward, in our own land of America, a great gulf of disunion opened in the midst of our Republic, and all our efforts at closing it were of no avail, until the most precious possession in our land, or in any land, had leaped into the gulf. Four hundreds of thousands of brave men gave their lives to the closing of this gulf of disunion which would have destroyed the peace and greatness of our land.

Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - Abraham Lincoln's forefathers were pioneers - men who left their homes to open up the wilderness and make the way plain for others to follow them. For one hundred and seventy years, ever since the first American Lincoln came from England to Massachusetts in 1638, they had been moving slowly westward as new settlements were made in the forest. They faced solitude, privation, and all the dangers and hardships that beset men who take up their homes where only beasts and wild men have had homes before; but they continued to press steadily forward, though they lost fortune and sometimes even life itself, in their westward progress. Back in Pennsylvania and New Jersey some of the Lincolns had been men of wealth and influence. In Kentucky, where the future President was born on February 12, 1809, his parents lived in deep poverty.

1908. This book is not a critical study, but a simple story. Its aim is to present in dramatic pictures the struggles and achievements of a common man, in whom the race of common men is exalted; who solved great problems by the plain rules of common sense and wrought great deeds by the exercise of the common qualities of honesty and courage, patience, justice and kindness. That is the Lincoln who stands forth as the true prophet of a reunited people and the noblest product of that democracy which is slowly uniting all peoples in fraternal bonds. Illustrated.

She is remembered today as a muckraking journalist, author of such blockbuster exposes as 1904's The History of the Standard Oil Company, which actually contributed to the corporation's breakup in 1911. But in this 1900 work, as charming as it is important, American author IDA MINERVA TARBELL (1857-1944) shows a softer side as she traces, with a laudatory and admiring spirit, the development of the character and morals of Abraham Lincoln. Begun as a project by McClure's Magazine to collect and preserve the reminiscences of friends and acquaintances of Abraham Lincoln while they were still alive, the project grew into a series of articles for the periodical, and then finally this two-volume spiritual biography of the great man, which draws on firsthand memories and other material, including original sources such speeches, letters, and telegrams. Volume I covers Lincoln's life from before he was even born, with the origins of the Lincoln family back to the early 17th century, through his education, his service in the Black Hawk War, his early dabblings in politics, his experiences and attitudes as a lawyer, and the presidential campaign of 1860.
