Excerpt from The Link, Vol. 25: A Protestant Magazine for Armed Forces Personnel; February, 1967

Nowadays everybody knows how far Carl Sandburg has traveled since his far off paper-peddling days. NO Pulitzer Prize ever seemed better deserved than the one which went to him a few years ago for his four volume work Abraham Lincoln: The War Years. His years of uphill strug gle were finally rewarded with enough leisure and security so he was able to carry out his long-cherished dream. None know better than the Lincoln scholars themselves what a master ly biography he produced.

Perhaps the most astonishing fact about Sandburg is that his own story is not unlike that of his great hero. His own folks were too poor to provide him with a high school education, but that didn't stop him, for he devoured every book he could lay his hands on that told about Abraham Lincoln. At nineteen, when he said goodbye to his father and mother to go to work in the Kansas wheat fields, he car ried in his hip-pocket a copy of a poem which he proceeded to learn by heart. Its title? One can almost guess it. It was Lincoln's favorite, Oh, why should the spirit of mortal be proud?
