Lincoln's Boat Ride

I don't like riding on boats, but our 16th president A. Lincoln rode on a flatboat to New Orlans when he was 19.  It took them three months to complet their journey.  Our president A. Lincoln saw slaves being sold and/or traded while he was on the journey.  He wasn't president yet but when he became president he put a stop to it because of what he saw on his boat ride to New Orlans.


  1. I think you would really like riding on a big boat, especially if it went down the Mississippe to New Orleans just like A. Lincon.
    I really like all your blog stories.
