Lincoln

cover_of_the_week-125x125The April 2015 issue of National Geographic is sure to be a big seller.

This photograph of the 16th President is iconic.  This cover marks the tragic anniversary of his murder 150 years ago.  Lincoln is considered by many historians to be the greatest president of all time.  He won the Civil War, preserved the Union, and liberated a people who were enslaved.

Despite the election of our first black President (Obama), racial tensions in the USA are sadly still a simmering issue.  This cover feature not only celebrates the legacy of Lincoln but places it in the context we find ourselves in today.  A great read.
