    [PDF/EPUB] (Abe and Fido) Abraham Lincoln has always been one of my favorite presidents There's a lot of reasons that I like him He was a reader He seemed to have a great sense of humor He was very smart He seems like he had some really fantastic life experiences and it's hard to get around that whole presidential career In Abe and Fido I found a new reason to love our 16th president Apparently he was a huge animal lover as am I In this

summary Abe and Fido ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF In early 1861 as he prepared to leave his home in Springfield Illinois to move into the White House Abraham Lincoln faced many momentous tasks but none he dreaded than telling his two youngest sons Willie and Tad that the family’s beloved pet dog Fido would not be accompanying them to Washington Lincoln was afraid the skittish dog couldn’t endure th. I was hoping for actual facts but the book was mostly assumptions based on a few personal accounts from people who knew the Lincolns before they went to Washington I love that Abraham Lincoln was an animal lover but it almost takes a backseat to the story of Abe the lawyer and politician

free read Abe and Fido

summary Abe and Fido ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF An unlikely tandem who each became famous and died prematurely The book also explores the everyday life of Springfield in the years leading up to the Civil War as well as Lincoln’s sometimes radical views on animal welfare and how they shaped his life and his presidency It’s the story of a master and his dog living through historic tumultuous times. I had higher expectations for this book It felt like a chore to read because most of it was based on assumptions rather than facts about the dog As it was 150 years ago it s difficult to know the facts which is understandable But the author also digressed from the topic several times and gave information about Lincoln s political career which I found to be one of the interesting parts of the book The information about Fido would have been much better if it was condensed and in a President s Pets compilation book instead

summary Abe and Fido ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF E long rail journey so he decided to leave the mutt behind with friends in Springfield Fido had been by Lincoln’s side as the prairie lawyer rose from obscurity to the presidency sometimes carrying bundles of letters from the post office in his mouth as he and his master walked the streets of the state capital Abe Fido tells the story of two friends. Matthew Algeo has taken the scant information on Abraham Lincoln s dog and weaved it through a history of Lincoln s life The Lincoln s obtained a dog they called Fido sometime around 1855 and Fido became a companion for the family in their home in Springfield When Lincoln left for Washington in early 1861 to begin his presidency they left the dog with neighbors At some point there were three photographs taken of the dog a yellow haired mixed mutt That s about all we know Still Algeo has managed to expand that into a short book 152 pages of textThe half dozen chapters are laid out by years Chapter 1 1855 Chapter 2 1856 etc but the freuent use of flashbacks and flashforwards makes those designations largely moot Along with basic history about Lincoln Algeo intersperses stories related to Lincoln s love of animals The author has extracted pig stories and cat stories and dog stories from throughout Lincoln s life and weaved them into a charming story in itself He also side tracks into Lincoln s interactions with such folks as Billy the Barber and others In the end Fido s death in some ways mimics that of his masterWhile Lincoln scholars aren t going to find anything new the book offers a uaint look at one of the most overlooked aspects of Lincoln s life his relationship with animals The book certainly doesn t go into any depth but it provides an endearingly agreeable respite from the overly scholarly tomes that so often arise about our 16th president In short it s a fun little book
