Abraham Lincoln Excelled in Wrestling—What Other Sports Did He Play?

Abraham Lincoln Excelled in Wrestling—What Other Sports Did He Play?

During Abraham Lincoln’s final year in Springfield, Illinois, in 1860, before he was elected America’s 16th president, folks would sometimes observe him in shirtsleeves, engaged in a fast-paced game of “Fives” with other young men in a vacant lot just off the public square.

The brick wall of the building next door provided the perfect place to play this 19th century version of handball. Here, the prominent local lawyer and rising politician, soon to become one of America’s greatest presidents, could set aside the rigors of work, let off some steam and trade some volleys in athletic competition.
