Congratulation's Steve.
That is indeed correct.

I am currently reading that book, Echoes From Hospital and White House. One of the better books I've read this year.

Your prize is a delicious Cozy Dog (hot dog on a stick) from the famous Cozy Dog Drive In, located in Springfield, IL. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBDlIypGA0k
and is redeemable during the next Springfield Tour currently scheduled for May 2018. Take it from me, we ate there one year and Joe Di Cola just couldn't say enough to me about the experience.


So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

RE: Who Said This?
This just in time for the Spring, Springfield Tour

Who said (or wrote) this?

It is not with the reported romance of Abraham and
Ann that I quarrel. It is with the elaborations that have
been woven in and around this story, the claim that Ann
was Lincoln's one and only true love, the memory of
which affected and influenced him throughout all the years
of his life. It is with the idea that so deep was his love for
Ann that he did not, and could not, love another woman.
It is because these claims and beliefs are not true to human
nature, because they are not in keeping with the character
of Abraham Lincoln and, in some respects, actually libel
his character, and because they have done so great a wrong
to the woman whom Lincoln loved and married that I
quarrel with the legend of Ann Rutledge as it is generally
told and believed.

If you need one, No clues until after 6PM central time

Edgar Lee Masters? (Although he wrote the words on Ann's headstone, I think he actually felt the depth of the love story was baloney.)

Good try, but that answer is not correct.

Speaking of baloney, as an added incentive, the winner of this trivia question wins a tasteful prize.

It was Indiana author Montgomery Smith Lewis in his book Legends that Libel Lincoln:

Besides the Ann Rutledge chapter, I find Lewis' take on the relationship between Lincoln and his father very interesting and worth a read.

RE: Who Said This?
Very good Steve, that is correct, you even linked to the proper page.

I just started reading this book, and it is very good. I liked the chapter about Thomas Lincoln too.

Wow, your prize is another Cozy Dog, redeemable at this years Spring Springfield Tour. We look forward to meeting you this May 4-6.
As a part of this years tour, we will visit New Salem and the old Rutledge Tavern. A few miles away, we will attempt to travel up a tractor path, provided it's not to muddy, to visit the real grave site of Ann Rutledge. Surrounded by farm fields, it is a true country cemetery.
