Happy Birthday Abraham Lincoln

With the generic "President's Day", the actual date of birth of our 16th president sometimes becomes overlooked.

Here's one of my favorite Lincoln images, from a rare astrology magazine, here from 1860.

By the way, the same magazine in April 1965 predicted he would be having a bad month with a higher than likely chance of assassination- demonstrating the old "even a stopped watch is right twice-a-day" chestnut.
