Project Gutenberg/The Story of Young Abraham Lincoln by Wayne Whipple

Written in 1915, so there will be some insensitive terminology and references by today's standards. If this is unacceptable, please skip this book. Some sections are written in colloquial English as testimony passed down to Lincoln from his relatives.
