Today was the observation day for President Lincoln’s birthday. The birthday is actually not until Wednesday.
Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809 almost 211 years ago.
Lincoln is my favorite President and and was also my Grandma’s favorite. I keep a little figure of him on top of my computer along with one of Washington.
They are part of a set of figurines I got from my Grandma. See: Marx Presidents
I also have a tall stack of books about Abraham Lincoln. Not quite as tall as me, but getting close.
One of my reading goals is to read the entire Carl Sandburg six volume series about Lincoln.
I also have a Mister Lincoln rose bush in my rose garden. Every time I see it I am reminded of this great man. He may not have been liked by many in government, but he left a great legacy.
