Happy Lincoln’s Birthday

by randallfmason

Check out this very interesting review of new exhibits on Lincoln at an extension of Ford’s Theater in downtown DC. As we discussed in class last year, the question of how the Civil War is interpreted–especially in DC–is potentially transformative. These exhibits get 750k people per year. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/11/arts/design/lincolns-legacy-at-expanded-fords-theater-complex.html?scp=1&sq=ford%27s%20theater&st=cse
