Happy Birthday, President Lincoln -- February 12, 2008

Abraham Lincoln, my favorite US President, would have been 199 years old today. If I had lived in the late 1850s and early 1860s, I might have been a Republican. Somehow, the two parties have switched many of their stands over the years. The Wigwam was the site of the 1860 Republican convention.
