Lincolns Voice?

Abraham Lincoln

This website is dedicated to the proposition that somewhere on earth there is a recording of Abraham Lincolns voice.  I have done some solid research on this and most information points to this being untrue.  Do not ask me why but I have made it my obsession to try and discover Lincoln artifacts and yes, maybe someday a sound clip of this mans voice.  I think it is out there somewhere.  🙂

“Lincoln’s voice was, when he first began speaking, shrill, squeaking, piping, unpleasant; his general look, his form, his pose, the color of his flesh, wrinkled and dry, his sensitiveness, and his momentary diffidence, everything seemed to be against him, but he soon recovered.”
William H. Herndon letter, July 19, 1887
