Local history

I’m a Lincoln fan so this marker on a wall in Port Angeles caught my eye. I guess at least the Daughters of the American Revolution found the event noteworthy.

  1. @Ron, I didn’t note the address. This is on E. First Street in Port Angeles, downtown, on the south side of the street. It’s (obviously) a brick building a block or so west of Port Book and News.

  2. I just took a silly quiz (which I am won’t to do at times) to reveal what President I am most resemble in temperament and personality. Much to my delight, I scored Abraham Lincoln. What a man he was. Have your read Doris Kearns Godwin’s book about him? We saw her a year ago in St. Paul discussing the book. Great experience!

  3. I am also a Lincoln fan. Nice plaque. His birthday is tomorrow, February 12, and I think this is the first time I don’t have a Lincoln post in the pipeline for February 12. Southwest Florida is not the place to find Lincoln stuff!

  4. did you see that movie about him last year? about the ending of slavery. i really liked it. (or was it the year before already?!)
