The log cabin was once a primary home for the expansion of the United States. It was easy to build, (Relatively) cheap, and could be build quickly. Presidents Andrew Jackson, Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant and James Garfield were all born in log cabins. I suppose if it was good enough for them, it’s good enough for us. However, the log cabin of old is not exactly what it is today. Today was created by Virginia Handy for the Log Cabin Society, Bad Axe Historical, in Michigan, on June 25th 1986.
How to celebrate – Build your own log cabin. Spend a vacation going from one log cabin area to the next comparing them. Buy some Lincoln Logs.
