Excerpt from The Boy's Life of Greatheart Lincoln: The Martyr President

No ambitious boy could have placed before him a record more healthfully stimulating than that of the first Martyr President of the United States of America. Abraham Lincoln's life is one that must appeal to the imagination of boys of every land and for all time. His courage in the face of defeat after defeat, his bearing before contumely and insult and misrepresentation, the undaunted front he presented to difficulties as varied in character as they were unprecedented in history, his suppression of self, his unlimited sympathy with suffering, his silence in private sorrow, his greatness in the hour of victory are themes that "belong to the ages."

"This rail-splitter, this boy who passed his ungainly youth in the dire poverty of the poorest of the frontier folk, whose rise was by weary and painful labour, lived to lead his people through the burning flames of a struggle from which the nation emerged, purified as by fire, born anew to a loftier life.
