American Elephants


Abraham Lincoln Was Born on February 12, 1809. by The Elephant's Child

Reprinted from 2011

I liked it better when we celebrated Lincoln’s birthday and Washington’s birthday separately. When it is “President’s Day.” and a three-day weekend, nobody remembers. And you and your children must remember this man. He saved the Union, and freed the slaves.

To understand America, you need to understand the Gettysburg Address (Vanderleun)

This picture emphasizes Lincoln’s height, although his lean body and the top hat emphasize it even more. He was 6’4″, tall today, but not unusually tall. Average height in the 1860s must have been much less. George Washington was 6’2″ and considered very tall.
