Honest Abe 200 Today

Today is the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincolns birthday. Edwin Stanton was oddly poetic and perfectly correct when he said at Lincolns passing, "He belongs to the ages now".

This link has a selection of Lincoln's orations. Given all the faux eloquence bounding about these days, it's well worth a read.
