I recently read a great book about the civil war so I’m thinking strongly of Abe Lincoln. What an amazing memorial in a city of memorials to a man who so affected the world. We’ll never know, but I sometimes wonder how it all would have gone with another leader instead of Lincoln. Would we have less racism? More? Would we be 2 countries? We’ll never know. I just know I got there early to see the sun rise and to beat the crowds. Still, there were a few people around. To get photos of a “clean” Lincoln without gawking tourists took some patience. Oh, the book. It’s The Lincoln Letter by William Martin.
