When I was young (many, many, many years ago) I remember seeing a newspaper article about Abraham Lincoln pulling one of my ancestors out of the troop inspection formation because my ancestor was very tall. Lincoln asked my ancestor to accompany him during the inspection.
I'm trying to locate this article, or some validation of this incident. My ancestor's last name was Schultz.
Do any of you more-knowledgeable Lincoln individuals know of this article or some documentation of this incident?
