That was very cool and I feel the same way. Not in that way because I am a guy, but that love that a son feels for his father. Like I said before, I wish he was here today to help with the crisis.

It is my first to visit this blog because i am curious about the title "My historical Boyfriend". I also adore Abraham Lincoln because i found out before he help a lot to our country. I think John Wilkes Booth did the wrong thing.

Lincoln is indeed a president who has taken on mythical characteristics. It is interesting to note that his contemporaries were not the big fans he has developed over the course of history. I came across your blog/website and thought you would be interested in this new book about Lincoln. “The Unpopular Mr. Lincoln: The Story of America’s Most Reviled President” by Larry Tagg is the first full-length book written entirely from the perspective of Lincoln’s contemporaries. What did the men who worked with him, for him, and against him actually think of Lincoln during his lifetime? Tagg dug deeply into newspapers, diaries, journals, letter collections, and other firsthand sources to paint what is perhaps the most riveting portrait ever of Lincoln’s election, inauguration, four long years as Commander-in-Chief, and tragic assassination. Readers are left to reach their own conclusions about how these startling accounts and evaluations of our sixteenth president affect his standing in the eyes of his countrymen. You can read more about the book here: http://savasbeatie.com/books/LINCOLN_book.htm If you would be interested in posting an excerpt from the book and/or conducting an interview with author Larry Tagg, please let me know and I would be happy to help.

What a fantastic post! Lincoln was truly a leader for all - whether you are Republican, Democrat, or somewhere to the left, right, or imbetween. And his writing and linguistic skills are something of a marvel.

I know a lot of people say that the Lincoln and Obama comparisons are silly. But I live in Chicago, and I think people in this city feel there is a strong link between these two transformational Presidents for our city and state. It definitely feels like Obama is stirring up the (good) ghost of Abraham Lincoln, which is awesome.

The dry wit and storytelling he was known for sprang from his prairie roots; all the land was once an empty stage for a story or laugh http://www.heelsunion.com

Lincoln was really someone who brought US to new horizons. If Lincoln would be here in these crisis, he would have come with a good solution to get everyone out of crisis fast.
