    Forgot to add yesterday that I wonder how many people actually now about the Proclamation nowadays, let alone the limits of what Lincoln could do. My son told me a couple of years ago that there were kids his age (teenager) who didn’t even know who Lincoln was or that he had been president during WW II, etc.

    Regrettably some people know very little about Lincoln, let alone current events.

    When I was a kid I had to memorize the Gettysburg Address. I think it was a good exercise.

    Off topic, but I like the new masthead and look of the Blog. Well done.

    What a great transition from step one to step two. Simplicity to higher thinking. Good finds.
