The Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial was the scene of both tragedy and hardship for the future president. Abraham Lincoln spent 14 formative years of his life at this site when his family decided to move from Kentucky. Abraham Lincoln’s honorable work ethic, love for learning and reading, and the deaths of his mother and sister all occurred here in Southern Indiana. These experiences shaped the boy who became the Great Emancipator.
