It’s no surprise that the state of Kentucky would want to cash in on the Lincoln Bicentennial, but this seems to be just a bit of a stretch. Does a reenactment of the Lincoln-Hanks wedding really stand a chance of attracting a substantial audience? I don’t know, but it seems to me that a reenactment of Abraham Lincoln’s conception would be more relevant and more likely to attract attention.

"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has... Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation."
David Blight, Author of Race and Reunion
