Of all U.S. presidents, Lincoln is probably

the one Americans remember the best and with

deepest affection. He wanted to see all the

people of the U.S., including the Negroes, free

from oppression and exploitation by the rich,

the owners of the big plantations.

Abraham Lincoln was born on February the

12th 1809 in Kentucky and spent his childhood

working hard at his father's farm as a farm‑

laborer, a shop-assistant and later as a clerk in

the post office. His dearest mother died and his

father remarried. Abe was able to go to school

only one year. This lack of education made him

hungry for more Knowledge. And his

stepmother encouraged him to read. Later, he

noticed that people loved to listen to his stories.

His speaking talents led him into politics and

law. In 1834 he was elected to the House of

Representatives and began studding to become a

Abe lincoln grows up
Abe Lincoln Grows Up

  • On the Knob Creek farm the child Abraham Lincoln learned to talk, to fore words with the tongue and the roof of the mouth and the force of the breatl from lungs and throat. "Pappy" and "Mammy", the words of the people mean ing "father" and "mother", were among the first syllables. He learned what the word name meant; his name was Abraham. The same as Abraham in the Bible the same as his grandfather Abraham. It was "Abe" for short; if his mothe called in the dark, "Is that you, Abe?" he answered, "Yes, Mammy, it's me.' The name of the family he belonged to was "Lincoln".

  • Seven-year-old Abe walked four miles a day going to the Knob Creek schoo to learn to read and write.

  • The schoolhouse was built of logs, with a dirty floor, no window, one door The scholars learned their lessons by saying them to themselves out loud till i was time to recite; alphabets, multiplication tables, and the letters of speller words were all in the air at once. It was a "blab school"; so they called it.

  • He learned to spell words he didn't know the meaning of, spelling the word before he used them in sentences. In a list of "words of eight syllables accented upon the sixth". was the word incomprehensibility. He _learned that first. an( *then such sentences as "Is he to go in?" and "Ann can spin flax".

  • Some neighbours said, "It's a poor make-out of a school," and father com plained it was a waste of time to send the children nine miles just to sit with a lo of other children and read out loud all day in a "blab school". But mother, a she cleaned Abe's ears in the corners where he forgot to clean them, and as sh combed out the tangles in his coarse, sandy black hair, used to say, "Abe, you go to school now, and learn all you can." And he kissed her and said, "Yes, Mam my," and started with his sister on the nine-mile walk through timberland whey bear, deer, coon, and wildcats ran wild.

  • He wanted to learn, to know, to live, to reach out; he wanted to satisfy hungers and thirsts he couldn't tell about, this big boy of the backwoods. And some of what he wanted so much, so deep down, seemed to be in the books. Maybe in books he would find the answers to dark questions pushing around in the pools of his thoughts and the drifts of his mind. He told his pals and other people, "The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who'll get me a book I haven't read." And sometimes friends answered, "Well, books aren't as plenty as wildcats in these parts o'Indianny."

  • What Abe got in the schools didn't satisfy him. He went to three different schools in Indiana, besides two in Kentucky — altogether about four months of school. He learned his A B C; how to spell, read, write. And he had been with the other barefoot boys in butternut jeans learning "manners" under the school­teacher, Andrew Crawford, who had them open a door, walk in, and say, "How do you do?" Yet what he tasted of books in school was only a beginning, only made him hungry and thirsty, shook him with a wanting and a wanting of more and more of what was hidden between the covers of books.
