Description
At last A book about Lincoln for K-1-- by an award-winning and bestselling author and artist team
Wise Abe Lincoln said, "No More " to slavery,
"No More " to slavery,
"No More " to slavery,
Wise Abe Lincoln said, "No More " to slavery,
Many brave days ago.
This simple song, sung to the tune of "The Old Grey Mare," was adapted from an actual campaign song for Lincoln during his run for the presidency.
