The Great Emancipator

by

Abraham Lincoln turns 200 today, and all you got was this stupid post.

(I meant to post something about Lincoln, but was overtaken by events.  Get over it.)

    LOOKING FOR LINCOLN, presented and written by Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., addresses many of the controversies surrounding Abraham Lincoln – race, equality, religion, politics, and depression – by carefully interpreting evidence from those who knew him and those who study him today.

    I thought the PBS Special did a good job of de-mythologizing Lincoln without impugning his integrity or greatness.

    Thanks, unicorn. I’d seen some promos for that, but had forgotten about it.
