For the next eighteen months, they lived in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, where, in 1807, their first child, Sarah, was born. The family then moved to another farm on 300 acres on the Nolin River near Hodgenville in Hardin County, Kentucky. Their crude log cabin was typical of the time: eighteen feet long and sixteen feet wide with a dirt floor, no windows, bear-skin rugs, and mattresses stuffed with corn husks. It was crowded, but there was plenty of food and game and wood for the fire. In that cabin, on Sunday, February 12, 1809, the future president was born.

That was a hard decision, as thorny as any of his efforts to win the Civil War and save his country from what he saw as its inevitable collapse as a divided nation. But Lincoln was in training for difficult issues. Nothing in his life had ever come easily. Abraham Lincoln’s first American ancestor, Samuel, a weaver, emigrated from Hingham, England, to Hingham, Massachusetts, in 1636. His son Mordecai, a blacksmith, pulled up stakes in search of opportunity and moved to New Jersey. Subsequent generations of Lincolns settled in Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

At Charleston, Illinois, on September 18, he rejected the notion of blacks being equal to whites. Nevertheless, Douglas appealed to moderate Illinoisans, who considered Lincoln and his supporters excessively antislavery. In the end, in the crucial 1858 legislative races in Illinois, Lincoln’s Republican candidates got more votes than Democrats won. But thanks to unequal districting, the Democrats held more seats. Thus, Lincoln failed to win the state legislature’s election to the Senate. The vote to re-elect Douglas was fifty-four-to-forty-one.
