Did You Know?

Most people that have studied history through the years have questioned certain points or thoughts that are generally accepted or projected as ideas. Abraham Lincoln has been presented as an agnostic or even atheist president in religion.

By chance I came into possession of a Mobile, Alabama newspaper article that was 100 years old and written by Thomas B. McGregor, Assistant Attorney General of Kentucky. Evidently Mr. McGregor had wondered about Lincoln’s religious affiliation or lack thereof. Also, evidently proven that Lincoln was reared in the Baptist Church. Most of the religious mystery of he and his parent religious life was found in the deerskin covered ledger of the Little Pigeon Church where Mr. McGregor found that Thomas Lincoln, Abe’s father, acted as Moderator and was a pillar of the Little Pigeon church near Lincoln City, in Spinder County, Indiana.

Mr. McGregor stated, “The parents of Abe Lincoln deserve a fairer estimate than has been allotted them by most of the biographers of Lincoln”. In fact, they were well to-do pioneers of their day and of sturdy ancestral parents, owned a farm, raised domestic animals, had tools, a family bible and were active in the community and had steady church attendance.
