ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S STUFF


Your encouragement can have great power. One reason why is because everybody needs to be encouraged. The night Abraham Lincoln was assassinated at Ford’s Theatre, he was carrying:

-Two pairs of glasses.

-A small velvet eyeglass cleaner.

-An ivory pocketknife.

-A large handkerchief with "A. Lincoln" stitched in red.

-A tiny pencil.

-A brass sleeve button.

-A fancy watch fob.

-And a brown wallet with a Confederate five-dollar bill.


But Lincoln also carried 8 newspaper clippings that he had cut out and saved. All of those clippings praised him. Everybody needs encouragement.
