Abraham Lincoln’s 200th Birthday

February 12, 1809 marks the birthday of Abraham Lincoln.  Many new children’s books about his life and presidency are being added to the collection.  You can discover what is available in the CRC by using “Abraham Lincoln” as a subject and limiting to the CRC.  Some books use historical research and imagine what his childhood was like, some highlight his presidency and the Civil War, while others examine his family and friends.  In addition, many Lincoln lesson ideas are available such as these from Abraham Lincoln Online.org.  To see how tall Abraham Lincoln stood, check out the CRC wall display the marks not only Lincoln at 6’4″, but also our shortest President, James Madison.  How short?  stop in and see.
