Childhood story

In New Salem, Illinois, when Lincoln was a teenager his boat became lodged on a mill dam. Water began to pour over the boat. The crew was unable to push the heavy boat over the dam. Lincoln thought quickly, he drilled a hole in the flatboat's bow and began unloading enough cargo from the rear of the boat to tilt it upward. As the water that was trapped on the boat's deck poured forward toward the bow, it drained through the hole. The flatboat, grew lighter as the water drained away, then floated over the dam.
