2009-A Great Year for Abraham Lincoln!

B. Nash & Mr. Lincoln

B. Nash & Mr. Lincoln

As 2009 draws to a close it must be said that it was a great year for Lincoln. It was his 200th birthday and there were observances everywhere. The United States issued a series of new Lincoln pennies. Lincoln was all over the covers of magazines. There was a whole slew of new books published about him.  He was featured in advertisements and television commercials. This humble blogmaster started ‘AbesBlogCabin’ (smile). Most significant of all, the United States elected Barack Obama-something Abraham Lincoln largely helped to make possible. I want to say that I completely enjoyed it all and look forward to another fantastic year of all things Lincoln.

I’ve included an online link to a BBC news article entitled ‘Obama’s America Remembers Lincoln.’ It serves as further proof of not just the U.S. paying attention to Lincoln, but the world.
