Beginnings in New Salem, The - by Mort Kunstler
Several members of the Lincoln family in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley headed west to find a new life in the expanding nation. Thomas Lincoln was one of them. In 1831 his twenty-two-year-old son Abraham – a “friendless, uneducated, penniless boy,” as he called himself – was a storekeeper in the village of New Salem, Illinois.
Tall, craggy, and awkward, Lincoln was hardworking and ambitious. He was hardly a refined gentleman, but no one who ever saw him would fail to take a second look.
A New Salem resident once asked Lincoln what he would do if he had money. Lincoln replied that he would like to study law.
