    Abraham Lincoln Sr was working his field w/his young son Tom when they were ambushed. Abraham took a mortal arrow & Tom was grabbed, attempted kidnapping. Tom's screaming alerted older brothers in nearby field. They came running, killed the two Indians & saved little Tom (President Lincoln's future father). Daniel Boone brought Abraham Lincoln Sr & family to Kentucky when Tom was an infant. Boone also brought Nancy Hanks' parents on the same caravan to Kentucky as an infant. B. Stokes

Accustomed to trample on the rights of those around you, you have lost the genius of your own independence, and become the fit subjects of the first cunning tyrant who rises." - Abraham Lincoln criticizing supporting tyranny over liberty as Foreign Policy
