text from An Abraham Lincoln Tribute, Featuring Woodcuts by Charles Turzak:
In verse, Abraham evoked the frontier Thomas Lincoln met in the early years of the nineteenth century:

When first my father settled here
'Twas then the frontier line;
The panther's scream filled night
with fear
And bears preyed on the swine.

-["The Bear Hunt"] (1846)
