Take a look at the cylindrical booktower displayed at Ford's Theater, where Abraham Lincoln was shot. It symbolizes the 15,000 books written about him!
For a complete edition of Lincoln's own writings stop HERE. He was a very wise and compassionate man. One of my favorite historical people.
We went to Ford's Theater once but the Boy Scouts where there and the line to get in was way down the street so we didn't go. It's on my bucket list.
Ford's Theater then...

The box where Lincoln was sitting...
In 1893 a part of the three upper floors of Ford’s Theatre collapsed killing twenty two clerks and injuring over 100 more government employees. Read about this HERE.
Lincoln was not a formally educated man, having said himself that he only had about a year of formal education, but he was a voracious reader all his life. Reading any book he could get his hands on. Self educated. Read more about Lincoln HERE and HERE
So who was your favorite historical figure?
