Happy 201 Birthday Abe Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln was born Feb 12, 1809 in Hardin County, KY.

Last year there was an wealth of recent publications on Lincoln that retrace his life and legacy, hoping to shed new or merely refocused light on all that is already known about the man. Ronald White’s “A. Lincoln” is an imposing doorstopper of a book, close to a thousand pages and exhaustively annotated and referenced. White’s research benefits from the availability of the recently completed Lincoln Legal Papers, which offer a more thorough view of Lincoln’s law practice.
