President Lincoln: A N.C. Native?

Record #:
The Bostic Lincoln Center in Bostic, North Carolina is studying a collection of documents and stories that relate to President Abraham Lincoln, and the claim that he was born in Western North Carolina, not in Kentucky. In the late 1700s, Nancy Hanks (Lincoln’s mother) came to North Carolina from Virginia with her mother and sister. Several historians make the case that Nancy became pregnant with Lincoln while serving in the home of Abraham Enloe in Swain County.
