Welcome to the newest Abraham Lincoln blog. As the heading states, the purpose of this blog is to provide a repository of facts, anecdotes, and even trivia about the 16th president of the United States of America. If the reader of this blog comes away with a greater understanding or appreciation of Lincoln, then this blog has achieved its goal.

While I’m new to the world of blogging, I’m not new to the web. In “real life,” I work as an information technology professional for a Fortune 500 company. That’s my job. But my true passion in life is the study of Abraham Lincoln. Other kids asked for Dr. Seuss books. I asked for books about Lincoln. I’ve always been fascinated by his life, his political career, and even his assassination. I’ve devoted more than 40 years of my life to reading about Lincoln, traveling to the various Lincoln sites, and collecting what small amount of original Lincoln artifacts I can afford.

As I wrote in the “About Me” section of this blog, I am not a historian, professor, or author. I’m simply one of the thousands of people who continue to seek a better understanding of the life and times of Abraham Lincoln. Thanks for dropping by!
