What gave him the idea to grow a beard was a letter he received from an eleven-year-old girl from Westfield, New York, named Grace Bedell. Dear Sir, she wrote, ...if you will let your whiskers grow I will try to get [my brothers] to vote for you. You would look a great deal better for your face is so thin. All the ladies like whiskers and they would tease their husbands to vote for you... Here is the true story of the determined girl from Westfield whose letter helped create the image of Lincoln that we have today. Illustrated with oil paintings that capture the look and feel of nineteenth-century America, this charming book will give children a real-life look into our nations history from a young girls point of view.
