Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial 1809-2009

The St. Joseph Museum is hosting a traveling exhibit about Abraham Lincoln, and the Catholic homeschoolers all enjoyed a field trip/program today. "What's so great about him living in a log cabin?" one student asked. "He was the first President who didn't come from wealthy connections, but was a self-made man," came the explanation. He is said to have owned only four books growing up: Aesop's Fables, Pilgrim's Progress, Shakespeare, and the Bible. A classical education!
