Gentle, plain, just and resolute—under whose cautious hand,
Against the foulest crime in history known in any land or age,
Was saved the Union of These States."
-- Walt Whitman
This past weekend, we attended the 200th Birthday Party for President Abraham Lincoln at the Plymouth Historical Museum in Plymouth, Michigan. Also attending with President and Mrs. Lincoln were Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Michigan Senator Jacob Howard, Mr. Lincoln's Honor Guard of Union soldiers, and even a Rebel. Here are just a few of the pictures we took.
