Henry couldn’t help but smile softly as he saw this, an arm easily sliding around Abraham’s waist. “I…have to say, I feel a lot better knowing how close you keep that thing.”

"It’s easier to carry than the new axe, and I think I’ve grown attached to it. I don’t think even you could sharpen it without it crumbling, the silver is in such bad shape. But it’s saved me many times. Besides, the axe hasn’t been silvered. And you did say to never let my guard down."

Abraham smirked and bumped hips playfully as they walked.

Henry slipped his hand into Abraham’s back pocket, walking with him. “Hmm, do you want me to take a look at it and see?”

Abraham kissed Henry’s cheek. “Maybe later. You promised me fun.”

Henry smirked. “I suppose dragging you to the sables and pinning you to the back of a door in one of our empty stables is out of the question?” He guessed, knowing they would have at least some privacy.

"I’ve done stranger things in stables, but nothing with such fun possibilities." He smiled up to Henry.

Henry looked amused, pulling off of him to offer a hand down to help him up with a soft smirk. “Shall we go explore the possibilities?”

Abraham laid on the grass for a moment before sitting up and taking the offered hand up with a smile. 

"Absolutely."

Out of habit he went to the pile of weapons and slipped his silver dagger into it’s case at the back of his belt before catching to Henry and trowing an arm across his shoulders.

How War Changed Abraham Lincoln

Beginning his term as president three months after South Carolina became the first state to secede from the Union, it is impossible to know if Abraham Lincoln could foresee the pure carnage that awaited him and the nation. Over 600,000 deaths later, the war’s effects are plainly seen on Lincoln’s face.

The picture on the right was taken February 5th in 1865.

But the one on the left dates back as early as May 20th in 1860, two days after his nomination as candidate for the 1860 presidential election.

To be on the safe side, one could consider the pic below as the very first one of Abraham Lincoln after taking office ( taken April 6th in 1861 by Matthew Brady).

I almost agree with this statement.

It is unbelievable what the stress and worries of the war did to him physically. It is a stark reminder of the aging ability of stress and anxiety. What was true in the 1860’s is still true today:Beware the ravages of chronic stress. If you make a decision, be ready to take responsibility for it

(that is one thing I truly respect him for)

"I told you!" Emily laughed, clapping her hands. "Bloody brilliant, that. I love it. I couldn't tell you what marshmallows are, but I could tell you about a million ways to destroy them. I've been playing with them since I first got a microwave."

Abraham could only laugh as he handed Emily a fork and dug around until he found the gram crackers and a chocolate bar. “It’s brilliant.”
