A Boy Who Grew Up to Be President

Many years ago a shy, gentle boy lived on a small farm. Although he was very young, the boy was strong enough to swing an ax right along with grown men. When his family bought land in a deep forest, the boy helped chop down trees for their log cabin and clear a place to pant corn. There were bears and other wild animals in the woods but the boy wasn’t afraid.

He worked hard. There wasn’t much time for school, and so he managed only one year in the small schoolhouse near his cabin. When there weren’t too many chores around the farm he studied his lessons. Most of all, he liked reading. He loved books so much that he often walked many miles just to borrow one.

He grew up to be a tall, thin young man. To earn money he plowed the soil and chopped wood for other farmers. He ran a ferryboat for people who wanted to reach the big steamboat on the river.He worked in a store where people came not only to shop but also to listen to the funny stories he liked to tell. Later the young man got job as postmaster and began to read books about law. He worked and studied-and now he walked for miles to borrow law books.

No one could guessed this man would someday be president of the United States… that as president, he would be commander in chief of the northern army in the War Between the States, the American Civil War.. and that finally he would help bring an end to slavery in America. His name was Abraham Lincoln.
