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.
