Boyhood of Abraham Lincoln
The Lincoln family moved to Knob Creek Farm in 1811. The next five years on the farm furnished Abraham Lincoln his "earliest recollections." Abraham Lincoln's early years on the Kentucky frontier helped to shape his character and prepare the boy who would grow up to become the sixteenth President of the United States to lead the nation through the tragic and turbulent times of the Civil War. His legacy of liberty and equality remains relevant today and has impacted people around the world.
