In the book “Abraham Lincoln: The Praire Years” the author, Carl Sandburg, states that once after dispatching an opponent in a match, Lincoln challenged the entire crowd of onlookers and said, “I’m the big buck of this lick. If any of you want to try it, come on and whet your horns.” But no one dared to accept the challenge.
