Happy Birthday, Mr. President!

Today is the 200th birthday of one of America’s greatest leaders: Abraham Lincoln.  This giant of a man (both figuratively and literally) earned his status in the exclusive Mount Rushmore Club by issuing the Emancipation Proclamation, winning the Civil War, and offering two examples of brilliant American rhetoric: the Gettysburg Address and the Second Inaugural Address.

If you are in the D.C. area today, take a walk up to the Lincoln Memorial and read those two fantastic speeches yourself!

Here’s wishing a very fond happy birthday to America’s first Republican chief magistrate, Abraham Lincoln!
