My family has a cabin on a North Georgia mountain in the little town of Tiger, which was probably named for the now departed mountain lions. I think it would be cool if they could reestablish...

Lincoln's father used to hire Lincoln out to do rough labor for others and kept whatever he earned. That, and not really approving of his son's bookishness, is probably why they didn't have a very...
