This is an interesting little book about one of our most famous presidents Abraham Lincoln. It is 44 pages long and was printed in Indianapolis, September of 1927. The book says it is "a restatement of some facts that too many folks seem to have forgotten". It seems to have been a book for students and was approved by Dr. Louis A. Warren of Zionsville, who at the time was an expert and researcher of Lincoln and Indiana.
The forward includes the statement: ... Students recognize that there are a number of disputed points in the career of Abraham Lincoln. For the purpose of this booklet, it was important that no statement be made that could not be substantiated. The illustrations are all pen drawings made at the various localities in Indiana which Lincoln is known to have visited. They are the work of Miss Constance Forsyth of Indianapolis.... No attempt has been made to write a complete history of the life of Abraham Lincoln in Indiana.
This is such an interesting part of history in our nation, not only the subject of Lincoln, but this unusual and first of its kind book for the state of Indiana. A great insight into the education of the 1920's in America. A perfect for the collector of American History or books.
