WHY ABRAHAM LINCOLN GREW A BEARD


Believe it or not, Abraham Lincoln, the first U.S. president to sport a beard, grew it at the suggestion of eleven-year old girl, Grace Bedell. This young girl from Westfield New York sent a letter to Lincoln saying: ``you would look a great deal better, for your face is so thin. All the ladies like whiskers and they would tease their husbands to vote for you and then you would be president.’’ Lincoln took this little girl’s advice and grew a beard. And yes, he did become president soon after! When Lincoln met Grace later on, he kissed her and said: ‘You see, the whiskers grow for you Grace.’’
