Subject: Lincoln cuts down a 'raccoon tree' in Athens, Illinois

Description: Depicts young Abe swinging an ax to cut down a tree with a raccoon in it. A dog is waiting for the tree to fall to catch the raccoon for the food and fur. The Colonel Matthew Rogers General Store and Post Office is in the background. This is one of four prints referred to as The Long Nine Collection. This story is documented in a book of reminiscences by the grandson of Henry Rogers, the son of Colonel Rogers. Henry Rogers, the proprietor of the General Store, loaned young Abe an ax from his store to chop down a 'raccoon tree'.

A copy of these reminiscences are a part of the Phil Wagner Lincoln collection.
