"My earliest recollection is of the Knob Creek place"

Here's my final installment of my latest photo series, posted in reverse order, of the Marathon Pundit family trip to Kentucky and Tennessee.

Abraham Lincoln lived with his family at a farm at Knob Creek near Hodgenville, Kentucky in a cabin similar to the one pictured here, residing there from 1811-1816. The Lincolns then moved to southern Indiana

In an 1860 letter, the future president wrote:

My earliest recollection is of the Knob Creek place.

Ten miles to the west, Lincoln was born in another log cabin, much like the one pictured a couple of posts down.
