Lincoln and Education a quote from the real Abe on the subject of education
"Upon the subject of education, . . . I can only say that I view it as the most important subject which we as a people can be engaged in . . . For my part, I desire to see the time when education, and by its means, morality, sobriety, enterprise and industry, shall become much more general than at present, and should be gratified to have it in my power to contribute something to the advancement of any measure which might have a tendency to accelerate the happy period."
Abraham Lincoln 3/9/1832
