lincoln memorial

Mar 012014
 

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.
