    Thanks for sharing the links. The Abraham Lincoln Research Site could prove very useful in preparing lessons myself or as a resource for students.

    Cartoons and satire are very interesting to me. I think you can take a great deal of lessons from humor. It also, in the case of these Lincoln cartoons, shows you how unpopular he was with certain factions of the country. Compare that with how he’s viewed today!

    I liked this quote found on the research site. It has a lesson several of my students need to remember. Worry about yourself and not so much about others. Even presidents have that problem!!

    “If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how – the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end.”
