The Great Emancipator

I still remember the first proper book report I had to write.  I was in 5th grade, at Ft. Huachuca, Arizona.  I chose Abraham Lincoln as my subject.  I learned a lot about the Great Emancipator and always considered him my favorite American President.  It’s one of the reasons I visited his home and his tomb (separate locations in Springfield, Illinois) during my Route 66 adventure, paying my respects to a great man (I’ll post pictures from those visits at some point).  Though I spend a lot of my time living and working outside these great United States, I ALWAYS find time to visit old Honest Abe when I’m back, as I did last night, after most of the crowds were gone.
