Abe Lincoln Afloat - J. C. Ladenheim. In 1828, Abe Lincoln, a gangling eighteen year old Hoosier farm boy, made the first of two 2,500 mile journeys down and up the Mississippi River, which he undertook at no small risk to life and limb. The youth marveled at the hazards of navigation, the strange plants and animal life, the crime and bustling commerce encountered along the great river and the slave plantations emerging from the wilderness. He visited a great city, heard foreign languages spoken, saw foreign flags and watched in distress as men and women were sold off by pitiless auctioneers. He returned home by steamboat, realizing every boy's prayers, and thereafter held himself out as an experienced river man. The author, a retired neurosurgeon, has been a lifelong Lincoln student and a former president of the Abraham Lincoln Association of Jersey City, the oldest Lincoln society in the United States. 2008, 5x8, paper, index, 82 pp.
