Year Of Lincoln Being Ignored In Southern States?
Apparently so . . .
"Most states in the old Confederacy are decidedly low-key as the nation commemorates the 200-year anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth, with a handful of museum exhibits and lectures among the modest events marking the occasion in the Deep South."
(Sorry to rain on the lovefest.)
**Update: I just received a mail solicitation from Ford's Theatre to become a "charter member" of "The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Campaign." Nothing personal, but I think I'll pass. I will, however, put the three pennies they glued to the solicitation to good use. I'm donating them to the SCV.
