Carl Sandburg (1878 - 1967)
Author-poet Carl Sandburg was born in the three-room cottage at 313 East Third Street in Galesburg on January 6, 1878. The modest house, which is maintained by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, reflects the typical living conditions of a late nineteenth century working-class family. Many of the furnishings once belonged to the Sandburg family. Behind the home stands a small wooded park. There, beneath Remembrance Rock, lie the ashes of Carl Sandburg, who died in 1967. Early Years
Carl August Sandburg was born the son of Swedish immigrants August and Clara Anderson Sandburg. The elder Sandburg, a blacksmith's helper for the nearby Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad, purchased the cottage in 1873. Carl, called "Charlie" by the family, was born the second of seven children in 1878. A year later the Sandburgs sold the small cottage in favor of a larger house in Galesburg. Carl Sandburg worked from the time he was a young boy. He quit school following his graduation from eighth grade in 1891 and spent a decade working a variety of jobs. He delivered milk, harvested ice, laid bricks, threshed wheat in Kansas, and shined shoes in Galesburg's Union Hotel before traveling as a hobo in 1897.

..'for it could be a place to come and remember' Carl August Sandburg's ashes are buried beneath a red granite boulder (Remembrance Rock) in the Carl Sandburg Park, Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois, USA. (See map...ref. no 2) In 1913 Sandburg and his family moved to a suburb of Chicago and he soon started to get his poetry published in Harriet Monroe's influential Poetry: A Magazine of Verse. Sandburg utilised the free verse style of Walt Whitman and wrote poems about the everyday lives of everyday Americans. At first, his use of colloquialisms was considered shocking - but his work soon found an audience. He was also one of the first US poets to write about industrial landscapes.

Arithmetic Carl Sandburg
Arithmetic is where numbers fly like pigeons in and out of your head.
Arithmetic tells you how many you lose or win if you know how many you had before
you lost or won.
Arithmetic is seven eleven all good children go to heaven-or five six bundle of sticks.
Arithmetic is numbers you squeeze from your head to your hand to your pencil to your
paper till you get the answer.
Arithmetic is where the answer is right and everything is nice and you can look out of
the window and see the blue sky-or the answer is wrong and you have to start all
over and try again and see how it comes out this time.
If you take a number and double it and double it again and then double it a few more times, the number gets bigger and bigger and goes higher and higher and only arithmetic can tell you what the number is when you decide to quit doubling. Arithmetic is where you have to multiply-and you carry the multiplication table in your head and hope you won't lose it.

Carl Sandburg was born on January 6, 1878 in Galesburg, Illinois. He had attended school when he was young, but he left school at the age of 13 to become a day laborer. Later, he served in the Spanish American War, and returned to Galesburg afterward. He had finished his college education at Lombard College. Then in 1913, Sandburg moved to Chicago, where he first gained recognition when he was awarded the Levinson Prize for his poem, Chicago. He quickly established himself as a realist through his original method of unrhymed free-verse poetry. From 1918-1933, Sandburg wrote editorials fot the Chicago Daily News. During that time, he also wrote many volumes of poetry such as Cornhuskers in 1918, Smoke and Steel in 1920, and Good Morning America in 1928. All of Sandburg's works expressed a basic optimism for the American future. As some people put it, "His poetry gained wide appreciation for its impressionistic style and colloquial vigor." However, Sanburg's fame was primarily based upon his works regarding Abraham Lincoln. He wrote The Prarie Years in 1928, and

Carl Sandburg was born in Galesburg, Illinois, on January 6, 1878. His parents, August and Clara Johnson, had emigrated to America from the north of Sweden. After encountering several August Johnsons in his job for the railroad, the Sandburg's father renamed the family. The Sandburgs were very poor; Carl left school at the age of thirteen to work odd jobs, from laying bricks to dishwashing, to help support his family. At seventeen, he traveled west to Kansas as a hobo. He then served eight months in Puerto Rico during the Spanish-American war. While serving, Sandburg met a student at Lombard College, the small school located in Sandburg's hometown. The young man convinced Sandburg to enroll in Lombard after his return from the war. Sandburg worked his way through school, where he attracted the attention of Professor Philip Green Wright, who not only encouraged Sandburg's writing, but paid for the publication of his first volume of poetry, a pamphlet called

Carl Sandburg (1878-1967) American poet, historian, novelist and folklorist, 'the singing bard'. In his work Sandburg gave voice to least powerful people. He was a central figure in the 'Chicago Renaissance' and he played a significant role in the development in poetry that took place during the first two decades of the 20th century. His emphasis on the tradition of American experience associate him with Hart Crane and Robinson Jeffers. these people of the air,
these children of the wind,
had a sense of where to go and how,
how to go north north-by-west north,
till they came to one wooden pole,
till they were home again.

(from The People, Yes Carl Sandburg was born in Galesburg, Illinois, as the son of poor Swedish immigrant parents. His father was August Sandburg, a blacksmith and railroad worker, who had changed his name from Johnson. His mother was the former Clara Anderson. Sandburg was educated at public school until he was thirteen, and he then worked in odd jobs in Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado. In 1898 he returned to his home town for a short time with the trade of house-painter. One of Sandburg's favorite stories was that he was rejected by West Point because he failed the test in arithmetic and grammar. When the Spanish-American War broke out in 1898, Sandurg enlisted in the 6th Infantry, but saw no combat. Upon his return he entered Lombard college in Galesburg, studying the classics. During these years he worked as a janitor as a "call man" on the Galesburg fire department. Encouraged by professor Philip Green Wright, Sandburg started to write poetry. His first book, IN RECKLESS ECSTASY, was printed privately in 1904.
