Year of Lincoln

A month ago, some friends and I had a trip to Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield, IL. Since the year 2009 is Mr. Lincoln's Bicentennial, this unique experience became unforgettably amazing and meaningful.

Next week, a new documentary, Looking for Lincoln, presented and written by Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., will be aired on PBS. This documentary addresses many of the controversies and myths surrounding Abraham Lincoln – race, equality, religion, politics, and depression – by carefully interpreting evidence from those who knew him and those who study him today.

Deserves a watch (also watch it here).
