Lincoln is a very popular subject at the moment because of the release of the Spielberg film last year with Daniel Day-Lewis in the starring role. Not being a film buff I haven’t seen it. But maybe there is a ‘yet’ at the end of that sentence and if I do watch any films in the near future that is likely to be one. I think it is set to become the definitive film about him.

The initial paragraph from the Goddess Wiki reads –
Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through its greatest constitutional, military, and moral crises—the American Civil War—preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, strengthening the national government and modernizing the economy. Reared in a poor family on the western frontier, Lincoln was self-educated, and became a country lawyer, a Whig Party leader, Illinois state legislator during the 1830s, and a one-term member of the United States House of Representatives during the 1840s.

And another two Go Green stamps.
