THE ULMUS 1931 (THE) SOUt OF THE) GREAT On a beautiful, sloping knoll above Rock Siirinii;. Hardin County, Kentucky. Abraham Lincoln, destined to be the greatest of his countrymen and the liberator of a race, was born in a humble log cabin on February 12, 1809. In the heart of this bhiegrass country around the picturesque pioneer illage of Hogdenville. voung Abe began his colorful career. From the first, traits began to apjjcar in this precocious child that distinguished liim from the average and prepared the way for his life work to come. Lincohi did not possess any of the comforts and opportunities that other children of more fortu- nate families cherish. Fate had not been so kind to him. His only home was a bar- ren log cabin; his companions were rough, pioneer folk of the community; his scant education was sha])ed bv the guiding hands of his loving mother. Nancv Hanks Lin- coln. When an epidemic removed his dear mother from this earth, early in his boy- hood. Lincoln experienced his first great sorrow. The child heart of Lincoln was struck with the harsh reality of life, and to mollify tiiis sudden transition from the ileliglitful land of enchanted youth into the realms of sorrow, figuratively speaking. He wrote a passionate plea to a minister, a friend of the family, about a hundred miles distant to come and deliver the funeral sermon. The minister came and the entire connnunity gathered for the occasion. Thomas Lincoln, Abe ' s father, was an illiterate, thriftless farmer, and Abe early felt the pangs of poverty. Various ideals exist as to Lincoln ' s boyhood. We especially love to dwell on that picture of Abe, lying before the dying embers of the fire-place, laboriously drawing crude figures on the wooden fire shovel, and then scrajiing them off again. Experiencing the need of an education, Abe ' s father was anxious that he receive all possible education that he could. Incidently, his concep- tion of knowledge was that Abe be able to cipher all the problems in an old arith- metic book that lay in the attic. Abraham did master that arithmetic book, and he went farther than that ! He seemed to be obsessed with a desire for knowledge, a craving that could only be (juieted by constant study. He borrowed volumes from the neighbors and poured over their pages until he knew them almost by heart. Night after night, he read long after the family had retired. On reaching manhood, he served as postmaster and deputy county sur eyor at New Salem, 111. In the meantime, he studied law and later became the greatest lawyer of the Illinois bar. . . . .Such was the early biography of Lincoln, the life that molded and shajied him for the tasks ahead. . . . Though living about a century later than his notable pre- decessor — Washington, a close comparison of the two men reveals several striking resemblances. Both rose to the highest office that their country could bestow upon them ; both met a crisis in the nation ' s history ; both freed a race ; both were held dear in the hearts of their countrymen. However, in the comparison of these two men, we must constantly keep in mind the age in which they lived. Lincoln is a dear, familiar figure to us; Washington exists as a ague image. ' f have no dear con- ception of his life ; we only know the deeds that he accomplished. Perhaps, on the other hand, if we i)ossessed an intimate knowledge of W.ish- ington ' s private life, he would not rate as high in our estimation as he now does. In the first ])lace, we regard Washington with unconcealed admiration as a great states- man and a founder of the American government. W ' asliington tens present at the Continental Congresses, the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the ratifica- tion of the Articles of Confederation, and the forming of the Constitution, but he did not present or form any clause in these great governing bodies. W.ishington ' s position in the Colonies was probably acquired by his prominence I THE ULMUS 1931 in Colonial att ' airs. At tlir tiuR- of tlu Anit-rican Ktvolution. Wasliiiifitori was tin- Wfaltliiest man in tlio CDlonifs. C ' onsf(iUfntly. wt- tinil tliat lu ' posscssitj all tin- ad- vantages in education and social ])rcstii;e tliat wealth could oflVr. It is oidy natur.al. then, that wh en the Colonies threw oil ' the tyrant yoke of Hnjiland they should select their most influential member as chief executive. I do not wish to belittle Washinnton ; I merely wisli to reveal the truth. Wash- ington has long existed .-is an image in the minds of the American pioplc. a su|)tr- natural being whom it is not desirable to criticize too closely. Lincoln wa.s essenti.iUy a scholar; we cannot say that Wasjiington was. Though ' ashington ' .s library consisted of over twelve hundred volumes, they de.ilt mostly with agricultural and military subjects, ' ashington was far more fond of sports than of reading. Lincoln, on the other hand, was exactly the opposite. We can say that his intellectual develojiment was affected far more by reading than by the in- fluence of schools. His aggregate attendance at schools amounted to less tlian one year; but he always was an assiduous student and on omnivorous reader. Another repelling factor in Vas]lington ' s life was that he was a free drinker of wine. Washington was particularly fond of ladeira. .ind his licjuor bill often ran into high figures. If we can accept the word of unbiased historians, we can say. how- ever that Washington was never intoxicated. Moreover, we can forgive him in view of the fact that it was considered, at tbat time, that every gentleman should have wine on his table. Again, Washington never used tobacco in any form, despite the fact that his vast estate at Mount Vernon was devoted largely to raising the crop. It has always been considered that Washington was a military genius. Again, historians interrupt our trend of admiration and declare that ' asliington ' s military success was due almost wholly to fortitude, not judgment or intellect. Wasliington was schooled in Colonial warfare and iiis bra ery inspired his men to win. but liis successes were not due to strategy. On the other hand. Lincoln was not a military genius either. But his originality, fearlessness and self-confidence, his unerring preceptions of right and wrong made him a leader. . . . Washington ' s mind was of the executive tyjie. He was essen- tially a pessimist. It seems to be the trend for all executive minds to underrate or depreciate value. We might say, then, that the real brains were Wasiiington ' s sub- ordinates, as Jefferson and Hamilton. Washington did not possess any definite ideals of government; he had no convictions. On a whole, he generally favored the type of government which gave the greatest power to the wealthy. Again. Washing- ton did not understand the economic status of labor. He knew comparatively little about the common people. The insignificant details were intrusted to more worthy inferiors. To sav that Lincoln was honest would be underrating his charactir. We kiioic that Lincoln was honest. It is one of his qualities that makes him so dear to us. Washington was honest in a strict sense of the word, but in a trade he was shrewd and practical. It was through his business sagacity that he accumulated his vast fortune. Indeed, Washington was, and has been, the only jjcrson to make the Mount Vernon estate profitable to its owner. Lincoln did not possess, or desire to possess, wealth in the material sense. His only property was a frame house in Springfield, which he bought after his marriage to Marv Todd, and two wild tr.icts of land in Iowa, given to him by Congress for his services in the Black Hawk ' ar. " hile Washington could measure his wealth in dollars and cents. Lincoln could count his in friends, in love of humanity, in intel- lect, and in the hearts of his countrymen. . nd yet. when we i)ausc- to n Heet. what greater wealth should man desire. We can say. then, with utmost veracity that the keynote of ■lshington•s per- sonality was character. . . not intellect, nor imagination, nor feeling. He was a per- fect pattern of self-confidence and dicipline. He possessed fortitude, steadfastness, dignity, courage, honesty, and self-respect. In short. Washington was the American SIXTY-THREE THE ULMUS 1931 common denominator, the average man dtifitd and raised to tlie ntli ])ower. Beyond that, we should not venture ! The appearance of Lincoln when he became President is thus described by Ward Lamon in his " Life of Abraham Lincoln " : " He was about six feet, four inches tall, the lenu-th of his legs being out of all jiroportion to the rest of his body. When he sat down on a chair, he seemed no taller tlian an average man. measuring from the cliair to the crown of his head; but his knees rose liigh in front. . . . He weighe d about one hundred and eighty pounds, but he was thin through the breast, narrow across tlic shoulders, and had the general appearance of a consumptive subject. Standing up. he stooped slightly forward; sitting down, he usually crossed his long legs or threw tliem over the arms of a chair as the most convenient mode of disposing of them. His liead was long, and tall from the base of the brain and eyebrow; his forehead as high and narrow, inclining backwards as it rose. " Lincoln was essentially a man of sadness and deep religious convictions. He had known the sorrows of humanity ever since his birth, and it grieved his heart to see his fellow-men suffer. Moreover. Lincoln was always conscious of his physical appearance and mannerisms. He was often scoffed and jeered on account of his ugliness and lanky figure ; he was naturally apart from his friends on account of his mental superiority. As a result. Lincoln dcvelojjed shame and always retained a complex about his ugliness. But when we consider Lincoln ' s personality, his experience, generosity, utter lack of vindictiveness, imcomparable tact, a tried strength which prevented vacilla- tion, we glory in his memory. What finer, purer man has existed since Christ? Won- derful, marvelous, superliuman ! Words fail to exjjress our emotions, our love, our gratitude, and our admiration. As man is measured by his contributions to mankind, we shall find little diffi- culty in placing Lincoln. . . . The great are formed to meet a crisis in history. There is no need for a strong, guiding hand when there is no trouble — and we find none. Always an obscure leader develops from the populace when mankind needs him. He may not be recognized at first, but he is there ! Time will develop him. It is a law of Nature; we cannot contradict nor underestimate that law. As an eagle is more prominent on the prairie by reason of his higher altitude, so are the truly great more discernable and more lasting than tlieir inferior fellow-men. We can ])icture Lincoln, lying on his death-bed after being shot by a crazed Southern sympathizer, with his face so tragic, so gentle, and so Inmiorous. liis great frame broken by the cares of the nation, his large hands ready to bless and to for- give, waiting the moment when the Angel of Death should gather him unto the im- mortals. . . . And when the physician solemnly declared the passing of his soul, it was William H. Seward, a one time ])olitical enemy and member of Lincoln ' s cabinet, who exclaimed the feelings of all, in a voice husky with emotion tliat he could not control, " Now, he belongs to the ages! " What finer tribute could any nation give? What deeper feelings of de ' otion shoul d any man desire? The future will come to know Lincoln better than tiie pres- ent; their love will be more intense than ours ever was; their souls will be wrung with grief at tlie ])assing of this ] Iartyr of tlie people; and they shall utter their prayers with more fervent reverence and heart-felt gratitude that such a man has ever existed!
