Lincoln Memorial Re-Dedication

1 06 2009

In connection with the 200th anniversary of the Great Emancipator’s birth, the Lincoln Memorial in Washington will be rededicated at a ceremony later this week.

Seeing this news item reminded me of an idea for a research project that once came to me but which I never pursued. My idea was to research and write an article on President Lincoln’s relationship with Canada. I think that Lincoln had enough of a connection to Canada and Canadians to provide the basis of a scholarly article at the very least. To my knowledge, nobody has researched this topic.
