Railsplitter.

The Emancipator.

Honest Abe.

Most commonly known by the name… Abraham Lincoln.

From a beginning in what was once described as a “hunter’s hut not fit to be a home” to an end as a great American martyr, Abraham Lincoln lived a life of strong morals, hard work, and continued education.

Much like our beloved George Washington, Abe didn’t have much in the way of a formal education, but that didn’t stop him from learning. He read anything he could get his hands on. In fact, that’s how he formed a profound respect for Washington and the Founding Fathers. They wrote the Declaration of Independence which, alongside the Constitution, steered Lincoln’s moral code. He staunchly believed that the Declaration of Independence represented hope for freedom for all people, and that the Constitution of the United States must be upheld.

Lincoln himself once said, “In this country, one can scarcely be so poor, but that, if he will, he can acquire sufficient education to get through the world respectably.” But we all know old Abe was a man of action. He proved his own statement by teaching himself law and becoming a lawyer in Illinois by the age of 28! That ended up being his first step toward politics. Eventually, he would earn his way into office as the 16th President of the States of America.

Abraham Lincoln didn't care to dwell on his childhood, he summed that chapter of his life up to "the short and simple annals of the poor." But it's clear from his staunch belief in the power of self-education and his own success from it that Lincoln never let his beginning influence how his life would turn out. Growing from a curious child into an eloquent man allowed Abe to captivate audiences with his powerful words and firm beliefs.

Railsplitter: a political nickname given to Abraham Lincoln during his campaigns for President. Abe was proud of his ability to swing an ax, but if he'd known that his cousin would truss a couple fence rails together and show them off as Abe's handy work to crowds, he would have had choice words for the scheme! For better or for worse, though, Lincoln's supporters loved the Railsplitter, their six-foot, lanky candidate whose ax work was legend.

Abe Lincoln, Rail Splitter
In 1860, Abraham Lincoln ran for President as the ‘Railsplitter’, a richly successful marketing ploy which helped the American people to feel a camaraderie with the massive, awkward Abe. Mr. Richard J. Oglesby, a savvy Illinois politician, had the original idea to call attention to Lincoln’s long hi…
