Today (February 12th, 1809) is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. Being that we are in the Land of Lincoln and that we are looking at the Civil War for our One Book program on Confederates in the Attic, this is a birthday we should pause and note. Our library has many books and DVDs about Lincoln. You can view them here: Search our collection for Abraham Lincoln.
Additionally, I thought it appropriate to post this 60 Minutes piece about the making of the new “Lincoln” film by Steven Spielberg.
60 Minutes: Bringing “Lincoln” to life (February 10, 2013)
