Today is Honest Abe Lincoln's 200th birthday!
I went to AOL news to see if they mentioned this event. Nope! I guess the man who freed the slaves and kept the country from splitting apart is not important to the folks at America Online. . .
Yet I did find a nice article on Lincoln, at of all places, BBC World News. What?!? The British are more concerned with our past than we are?!?
Abraham Lincoln was. . .
- The first Republican to become President of the United States
- The Great Emancipator
- The man who would not let this country fall apart
Happy Birthday Abe! May there be more presidents like you in our future.
And if anyone mentions that Lincoln is Obama's mentor I will track you down and lecture you on how Lincoln and Obama are completely different.
Oh, did I mention that I'm from the South?
