Today is Lincoln's Birthday
Abraham Lincoln is one of those rare figures whose greatness increases with familiarity. I plod through books about him not because he is boring but because the material is so rich that it cannot be quickly consumed. I am still shifting between Lord Charnwood's great biography and Harry Jaffa's classic on the Lincoln - Douglas debates. Each book has had plenty of "wow" moments. To call him "great" demonstrates the inadequacy of words.
