Remembering Pres Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)



Abraham Lincoln was born in 1809.

We will have many celebrations across the land.   Lincoln was a great man.  The Lincoln monument was the highlight of my visit to DC many years ago.

It's hard to pick a favorite quote from Lincoln. I like this one from the 2nd inaugural speech, about a month before his assassination:
"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan – to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations."
There are many books about Abraham Linconl.          Let me recomend this one:
