Lincoln bicentennial in East Tennessee

If you want to do something to celebrate the Lincoln bicentennial on Feb. 12 but you can’t make it to Hodgenville, Washington, or Springfield, don’t despair.  If you’ll be within driving distance of the Cumberland Gap area, why not attend the special program at the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum?  “Let Us Praise Famous Men” is a presentation on Lincoln in films by Dr. Liz Murphy Thomas of the University of Illinois-Springfield.  There will be two showings, one at 10:00 A.M. and one at 4:30 P.M.

While you’re there, you can scope out the museum’s fantastic Lincoln-Civil War collection and see the special exhibit on Lincoln in memory.
