It's really just a project. It's a corn project that we undertook a few weeks back in and it's it's taking some time to put it together because it encompasses flying pattern that goes all the way from western Iowa it to Eastern Ohio and we've taken well over four hundred pictures of fields to to try to identify what the status of the crop is just how variable it is just how many holes in the field you see and there's also some good fields out there too.

"Side. But he he he they wind up coming back home in the summer of eighteen thirty two and he renews his race for the state legislature. And the outcome of that race. He lost of he lost the race. But let me tell you though, there were people who listen to him give campaign speech or to. There was a prominent lawyer and Circuit Judge in Springfield by the name of Stephen Trigg Logan, now, let me tell you about Stephen Logan, just really briefly. He's another Kentucky. He is the grandson on his mother's side of Colonel Stephen Trigg who was one of the commanders at the battle of blue licks and was killed there on his father side. He's the grandson of James Logan, who was the brother of the famous Benjamin Logan who settled Logan station, which is now Stanford Kentucky. And so this man has deep Kentucky Roach. And he sees this young kind of. Gawky fellow giving the speech and just like Rb Rutledge. He listens. And then finds this man to be not only fascinating to watch and listen to but he says, he's extremely popular. Where he is those are his words. So again one year he's been elected captain of militia company, and he's now referred to by main political operative in the whig party as being extremely popular where he lives now, he lost the election. But in new Salem, alone Lincoln poll, two hundred seventy seven of the three hundred votes cast. Shows you how popular he was. So he's getting onto the radar of the party in Illinois public and party in Illinois as early as eighteen thirty will not the Republican party. Then the whig party would become Republicans the fifties, the whig party, and yes, he's he has gotten on the radar of of the whig party. K? So after he lost the election. Does he go back to new Salem? He's living there. Never really left. New salem. Okay. He ran as a resident of new Salem for a house district. That new Salem was a part of. So what does he do now? Well, this is a rather odd part of his existence there. He is offered a position to become a partner in a general store. And he does so by buying entirely on credit, the interest of one of the partners. His name was Rowan Herndon another Kentucky. And so now he becomes partners with William berry in eighteen thirty three in this general store, and it all turned out rather badly. Frankly, you can almost guess this happening with him when he was no storekeeper. This guy has something else in mind in his life than tending store. But now some of the some of the most wonderful episodes on oh that we've filmed in this production where he minding a general store and Lincoln won the general store. Also be where the the post office was. And it would also be where all the all the fellas would gather sit around, you know, drink cider, or whatever and talk, and we're all the newspapers were delivered and Lincoln is a storekeeper became a voracious reader of newspapers. I'm the only get information about outside world. And so as the newspapers would come in before he gives them to those who they were do he read through all of them. And then as all the loafers would come in and sit around he he became their source of humor because Lincoln could Dag on tele- story that was funny, and he would sit back and just tell stories to these people. This is not a good way to earn a living and. It might might seem fun. But then you wonder, well, where's William berry in this picture will William berry is almost non-existent. He was an alcoholic turns out. And so he was almost not capable of doing much Lincoln had to run the store. And when he ran the store, it just became loaded with these guys, and they sit and laugh at the stories, he tell well as you can imagine the store the store failed and Lincoln was in debt and unemployed, and as he said to he was reduced to the elemental of keeping body and soul together. That's how he described his situation. But then there's certain things that happened for him. These people love Lincoln, and so knowing he was really kind of down in out in eighteen thirty three he was a point. Waited postmaster of new sale all of had didn't give him much money, but gave him something. And so what this guy then does is he hires himself out to people to help help them bring in their crops plant their crops, do odd jobs anything what a love about the guy is. He's never too proud to do what it takes to keep himself going and do keep his eye on the prize that he seeks for himself. And so here's this interim where he's just resolved, whatever. And this is where we get our image of him as the rail splitter among yeah, we'll see he's -solutely. He's out there wouldn't rails making firewood making fence rails. Because he had really in Indiana when he was young man, and he lived there for fourteen. In years before he moved to Illinois. He had he had really spent a great deal of time using an axe. And he says it I mean, he says I grew up using an axe to make rails. And so again, he's not too proud to go back down. And do it at took do what it takes to to make a living. And so it had. And then. On the heels of this. His appointed. Deputy surveyor. No anything about survey. So what he does he calls mentor Graham again and Graham shows him a couple of books on the theory and practice of surveying a book on geometry and trigonometry and his kids. Learn this stuff with him. Cram is a schoolteacher in Graham is teaching him. How to be a surveyor and rink and has confidence. He can acquire these skills precisely. So he does that. And does he get to do surveying? Guess he does short time becomes a surveyor and becomes a very good surveyor. In fact, the towns of Petersburg, which is in Menard county, and it's the town really that became the town of virtually all the new Salem residents. Ultimately, new Salem, basically cease to exist in the early eighteen forties. Most of those people had moved to the town of Pietersburg. Abraham LINCOLN surveyed the town of Pietersburg. He surveyed the town of new Boston Albany and here on Illinois and most of the roads, connecting them. Now. That's amazing. And this is this is eighteen thirty three and eighteen thirty four. He's now only two in three years into his residency there. Some it's remarkable to me totally remarkable. Interesting

Today. We are speaking with Kent Masterson Brown. The president of the witnessing history education foundation about our latest documentary called in the declaration all men are created equal. Abraham LINCOLN Illinois eighteen thirty to eighteen sixty this period in the life of the sixteenth, president shows his development from what he described himself as being a piece of floating driftwood to becoming an accomplished lawyer legislator and presidential candidate. And now, let can't Massar some Brown. Take you on a journey to American history. Welcome can tell us. What is so important about this period of Lincoln's life? Well, first of all, thank you. It's great big here. What what makes this? So important is frankly what you just described here. He is at age twenty two appearing in new Salem a village in central Illinois, just north of Springfield in there. He had just come back from a long journey down the Mississippi River with a man named Denton off it and delivering cargo to New Orleans, and he journeyed all the way back home. Now, he had had not more than one year or the formal education and is in tire life, and so he described himself then as a piece of floating. Westwood? And that's what he was yet from that moment in eighteen thirty one when he appeared in new Salem until may eighteen sixty he would become over those years as you indicated. A very accomplished lawyer legislator, and in the end the Republican nominee for the presidency and in November of eighteen sixty he would become the sixteenth president of the United States. Now that is a remarkable achievement. It really is it seems that what you're describing is that he found his purpose in new Salem, Illinois. What do you think about his life? In new Salem helped him discover that purpose. Some of it was inside Lincoln now. First of all ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Is a fellow who truly sought to improve his lot. He being a floating piece of floating. Driftwood really wasn't good for him. He looks at that in some derision. What he wanted was better wanted to do better in life, and he found in new Salem, a group of people maybe twenty five families living there all in log cabins for those interested in seeing what new Salem looked like you can visit it today. But he found in those families people who would help him who were much like him who came from. Lots of them came from southern states Kentucky being principal among them. And he Ecorse was of native Kentucky, but he found people who were responsive and who were helpful. So when Lincoln wanted to learn grammar the areas that twenty two years of age actually Twenty-three when he begins this. He asks mentor Graham, a resident there magin the name mentor. Named for being the mentor of ABRAHAM LINCOLN. But he asked him in a mentor Graham, if he could help him learn grammar, so. Mentor Graham reaches for Kirkwood's book published in the eighteen twenties on grammar, and he and Lincoln study grammar. And when Lincoln then is offered a job as they deputy surveyor for what we came Menard county, Illinois. He doesn't know anything about surveying yet. They liked him and they made him deputy surveyor. So he goes back to mentor Graham, and he asked him could you help me? What do I do? Alern surveying and Graham shows him texts that he can turn to and he and Lincoln study the text. You're describing a character who is teachable teachable. He's humble and hungry he's hungry hungry. And he's learning how to learn right, right? And you know, interesting he shows up in July eighteen thirty one in new sale. This piece of floating driftwood in eighteen thirty two. He throws his hat in the ring to run for the state legislature. One year. So his skills as a leader are dented by the people in that town, what who are some of the people who influenced him there in that short year there. Lots of them a man named Jack Kelso. Jack Kelso lived in a in a dog trot. Log cabin to log cabins with a with a like a a section in between you could walk through in the open air. It's called a dog trot cabin. He lived at a dog trot cabin. And he loved to read Robert burns and Shakespeare. And so he introduces Lincoln to Shakespeare now magin in a log cabin community in the middle of nowhere in Illinois. You have people who have this sort of mindset. And so he introduces Lincoln to Shakespeare introduces them to Robert burns, which was Kelso's favorite and Lincoln learns to read not only through metric Graham, but learns to read through reading the great classics in this again is all happening in this little place that came about in eighteen twenty eight new Salem only his origin to eighteen twenty eight. And here's a Lincoln in eighteen thirty one showing up there and by eighteen thirty two he's not only studying grammar and studying Shakespeare, Robert burns, a run for the legislature. So let's talk about a few of the influential individuals who worked with Lincoln. And helped him make himself believe he could become a legislator for the state of Illinois. Well, there were there were several one of them is James Rutledge. The Rutledge is of new Salem all came from as the name would suggest South Carolina, but they came from South Carolina through Kentucky, and then into Indiana, and ultimately, Illinois, but James Rutledge was the founder of the debating society that a debating society, and he allowed Lincoln to have two one one join the debating society, but then gave him an opportunity to stand up on his feet and offer a subject for debate and Lincoln did. So and James Rutledge is brother are b Rutledge who's another influence online. A remembered what Lincoln said that night and was incredibly impressed not with necessarily all the contents. But the performance of Lincoln and how much he made his points clear, even though he began as you can imagine Lincoln was six four had huge hands big feet long arms and legs. And he was awkward looking at soon Cording to Rb Rutledge. They he lost this idea of this being an awkward man and began to just listen to his performance, and the performance he said was remarkable. Now, just think of this. This is the the driftwood just a year before in here. He is making this performance in front of a debating society. Now a lot of it came about because Lincoln found a home here. He
