February 12, 1809

As an avid Lincoln/Civil War scholar, I wanted to commemorate his 200th birthday.

He was our greatest President, presiding over horrific times, and the echoes of that time still affect us today.

Being shot on Good Friday helped form his legend with the day's significance, and the Victorian penchant for elaborate mourning solidified his sacrifice. The man became myth, but his flaws and virtues are fascinating all on their own.
