Lincoln's Birthday

Feb 12

DRESSING UP LIKE "HONEST ABE" TODAY, PIGGIES?! IT'S FEBRUARY 12, LINCOLN'S BIRTHDAY! 🎂

"Four score and seven years ago <br> our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, <br> conceived in Liberty, <br> and dedicated to the proposition that all pigs are created equal."<br><br> ~ The Gettysburg Address, 1863, adapted for guinea pigs

At 6 foot 4 inches, Abraham Lincoln remains the tallest president in U.S. history. And one of his iconic stovetop hats - the one he wore (which was 7 to 8 inches tall) to Ford’s Theatre the night of his assassination - is a permanent piece of the Smithsonian collection. <br><br> Abraham Lincoln is often ranked as one of the United States’s most important presidents for his role in steering the country through the Civil War and his insistence on abolishing slavery, culminating in the Emancipation Proclamation.
