Happy B'day Abe
Today I had the pleasure of attending a ceremony honoring the birthday of President Abraham Lincoln. The ceremony was held at the Lincoln family graveyard just outside of Broadway, Virginia. It may surprise some to know that the Lincoln family has very deep roots in the Shenandoah Valley. The location of the family graveyard is close to where Lincoln's father was born and lived before the family moved to Kentucky. Many of the President's relatives are buried there, including his great-grandfather and his cousin, who was also named Abraham Lincoln.
The ceremony was conducted by Bridgewater College President Phillip C. Stone.
