A sign of respect. The least we can do for one of our assassinated presidents.

Abe Lincoln was such a great president. "Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."

After all these years, that's pretty neat to see that the area is honored and the president recognized. Hugs..RO
