October 15, 1860
Grace Bedell writes to Abraham Lincoln
Eleven-year-old Grace Bedell, upon seeing a picture of Abraham Lincoln just before the 1860 election, wrote to Lincoln on October 15 and suggested he should grow a beard because his face was "so thin." By the time he went to Washington, DC, Lincoln had grown a full beard.
