Abraham Lincoln’s Dueling Words

Abraham Lincoln’s Dueling Words

by Donna Janel Bowman

Abraham Lincoln was known for his sense of humor.  But in 1842, early in his adult life, it nearly got him into trouble.  He had to use his imagination to save his career – and maybe even his life. When Abraham Lincoln became frustrated with the actions of James Shield, a political rival, he came up with a plan.  It was silly.  It was clever.  And it was a great big mistake!  Lincoln, his future wife, and a friend of hers wrote a series of fictional letters to the editor, complaining about Shields.  But when Shields took offense, he challenged Lincoln to a duel.
