    150 years ago,(February 9, 1864) Lincoln posed for photographer Antony Burger in what would become the most iconic images of Lincoln as we know on the penny and the five-dollar bill.

    Bill, great site. Can you tell me where to find the Henry Cross painting of Abe? I’ve been looking for it for years. I saw the Chicago tribune use to print it on his Birthday every year.

    New Author Megan Hardgrave is proud to announce the publication of Ride With the Assassin. A new historical fiction novel focusing on the Lincoln Assassination from a teenage witness perspective. The plot revolves around Mark, a boy who unwittingly helps John Wilkes Booth escape from Ford’s Theater after he assassinates President Lincoln. For 12 exciting days he travels with Booth along his escape route. It is inspired by a boy who held the reins of Booth’s horse on April 14, 1865. To order a copy please contact her.

    Good morning Bee! Thanks for visiting the AbesBlogCabin! And thanks for that super video. I didn’t know how they were going to pull it off using the words of the Gettysburg Address-but they did!

    Good morning! Cool to hear from you on my blog! The Spielberg movie on Lincoln has been in the works now for years. It is finally going to happen! Communicating with a friend who has been on the set of the movie-apparently everything looks really authentic. Daniel-Day-Lewis studied Lincoln very hard for the role. From the looks of the picture-I think he became him. The buzz about Sally Field as Mary Lincoln is also very positive. Can’t wait!

  19. Babs B says:

    Hey Bill! This may be cooler than the origami $5. Love Daniel Day Lewis.

    OSCAR WINNER Daniel Day-Lewis transforms into our 16th president in Steven Spielberg’s** long-in-the-works historical drama Lincoln, out November 9, and we have a first look!

    Video: Bloody Fun & Tasty Temptations on ‘Lincoln’ Set **

    Of the complicated historical character, Spielberg TELLS EW (where you can see the full-sized pic), “Lincoln had a very, very complicated — and at the same time, extremely clear — inner life. He thought things out. He talked things out. He argued both sides of every issue. And he was very careful in making any decision. As a matter of fact, his opponents and his enemies criticized him often for being impossibly slow to a decision.”

    Lincoln focuses on the last four months of the president’s life and the political strategizing he undertook at the close of the Civil War to ensure that slavery would be forever outlawed. The film also stars David Strathairn as Lincolns loyal Secretary of State, William Seward; Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Gulliver McGrath as Lincolns sons, Robert and Tad; Sally Field as his wife Mary Todd Lincoln; and Tommy Lee Jones as Thaddeus Stevens, a radical member of Lincolns own party.

    “Our movie is really about a working leader who must make tough decisions and get things done in the face of overwhelming opposition,” says Spielberg.

    Hey Dave: Same to you :)

  21. LincolnPhotog says:

    Hope you are keeping cool Bill.

  22. B. Nash says:

    Thank you. However, I didn’t design the site- a good friend of mine did.

  23. click says:

    This is a fantastic site, would you be interested in making time for an interview regarding just how you designed it? If so e-mail me!

  24. I love Abe’s Blog Cabin! Your vivid telling of his story is appealing and exciting. Keep up the good work and thank you for sharing!

  25. B. Nash says:

    Dave: Had no knowledge of it! Sounds like a future day trip. Thanks!

  26. LincolnPhotog says:

    Bill, are you familiar with the Lincoln on Horseback statue at Adrian College?? I was contacted by a professor there who reads my sporadic blog posts. Their version is only 4′ feet tall but claims the distinction of being the model from which the 14′ versions at New Salem, Midland, MI, Lincoln City, OR, Syracuse University and Palissades, NY were enlarged from. The statue is inside the college library.

  27. B. Nash says:

    Thank you so much! Welcome!

  28. I just discovered Abe’s Blog Cabin. I feel as if I’ve just come home…

  29. LincolnPhotog says:

    Thanks. It was not me. I haven’t been buying much lately at all.

  30. B. Nash says:

    Dave:
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours as well! Your phtographs of Mr. Lincoln at: http://dbwiegers.zenfolio.com/ are simply awesome. Keep up the great work my friend. Were you the one that beat me for that Ebay auction of the Lincoln statue last pm?
