Birthday of Abraham Lincoln

Birthday of Abraham Lincoln

Many of us can recall celebrating a separate birthday for Lincoln and for Washington in my childhood.

In Elementary School, we covered the bulletin board with rail fences and log cabins of construction paper for the 12th, then replaced them with cherry trees and cannons for the 22nd.

Here is a postcard commemorating Abraham Lincoln.

The postcard was unmailed, but found with the correspondence of a resident of Lancaster, PA.

I believe the postcard was a memento of the centennial celebration of Lincoln’s birth in 1809.
