What Lincoln said
The story of one of Ameri a's most revered presidents—in his own words!
"I could scarcely believe my eyes. By honest work I had earned a dollar." Abraham Lincoln resolved always to work hard and be honest. With much perseverance, he became a lawyer and a politician.
"Just think of such a one as me as president!" he laughed when his wife said he could lead the country.
But Lincoln had great changes he wanted to make. He campaigned, saying, "If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong," and he won the election in 1860.
Award-winning author Sarah L. Thomson deftly integrates Abraham Lincoln's famous words into the narrative, revealing the inspiration and determination that led to his greatest achievements. Renowned illustrator James E. Ransome has created striking paintings that illuminate Lincoln's enthusiasms and passions from childhood through his adult life.
