The Heroic Life of Abraham Lincoln free pdf Excerpt from The Heroic Life of Abraham Lincoln: The Great Emancipator Abraham was the firstborn, and then there was a sister Sarah, a year younger than he- then came Thomas two years later, who died in infancy. The first schooling Abraham got was from his mother, who taught his sister and him to spell and to read. When in his seventh year he went to school in the little log school-house near his home. But Thomas Lincoln, the father, heard of the rich and fertile lands of Indiana, which had recently been admitted into the Union, and the tales of the Indians so inspired him that he pulled up stakes and started for the new home, which to them was "the Land of Promise." With all their household stuff packed on two horses, they made their way, by night sleeping on the fragrant pine twigs, clearing their way through tangled thickets and fording the streams. At last after a week or more on the tiresome journey they came to the banks of the river and, looking over, they saw the almost trackless forest which was to be their home. The family pushed their way forward, and on a grassy knoll in the heart of the untrodden forest the) built their first rude cabin. Abraham was now in his eighth year. He was tall, thin and gawk-, and clad in frontier fashion. He said himself he never wore stockings until he was a young man grown. In this log hut, in the first year of their frontier life, came their first great sorrow, the death of their mother, on the 3d of October. She was buried under the shade of a wide-spreading sycamore tree, and over her grave little Abe shed his first tears of real sorrow. Years after he would say with tear-dimmed eyes, "All I am or hope to be I owe to my angel mother." In the autumn of 1816, Thomas Lincoln, with the slight assistance little Abe could give him, felled the logs and "raised" a more substantial cabin. In the fall of 1816 Thomas Lincoln went off, leaving the children to take care of themselves, and they heard nothing of him until one morning early in December the wanderer returned with a second wife, a Mrs. Sally Johnston. She was known to the children in Kentucky, so they warmly welcomed her and were good friends immediately.
