This was the first unpleasant event happened in his life that made him harder. After this episode, his father remarried to Sarah Bush Johnston. She was a widow and had three children. Soon, she intermingled with new family and Abraham got affection from her like her mother.
Sarah encouraged Abraham Lincoln to learn reading. He thoroughly learned reading for about 18 months. His passion for reading grew so much that he used to walk miles away from his village to nearby book store to borrow a book. He read Robinson Crusoe, Pilgrims Progress, family Bible and others.

During the Black Hawk War in 1832, he was elected as a captain by the volunteers of the United States and Native Americans. This was his first move to political career.
