Happy Birthday, President Lincoln #2 -- February 12, 2009

Today is Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday. My favorite president. There are lots of new books. I haven't gotten to see any of the new television programs about him.

"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." -- Second Inaugural Address
