Today was President Lincoln’s birthday. I was reminded of this when I visited the library today and there was a notice that they would be close for the observance of his birthday on Monday.
Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809 in Hardin County, Kentucky. My 3rd Great Grandfather Thomas Bolin was born in the same county in about 1808. The Lincoln and Bolin families both moved to Perry County, Indiana in the mid 1810’s.
They are part of a set of figurines I got from my Grandma. See: Marx Presidents
One of my reading goals is to read the entire Carl Sandburg six volume series about Lincoln.
