If you are in the area today stop by room 4C for Lincoln cupcakes, Lincoln Logs, and a viewing of D.W. Griffith’s “Abraham Lincoln” starring Walter Huston. One of my students is bringing in Lincoln punch, but I’m not sure what that means. I should probably sample it beforehand.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Lincoln
