Lincoln grew up with the country when prairies were turning into cornfields, forests into well-peopled cities; when railroads were reaching into new regions; steamboats, mechanical harvesters, telegraphs, were coming into vogue. Sandburg has shown A.L. developing out of this growing america - not the conventional, legendary figure, but the Lincoln of reality.
