3 for 3

Today is the 196th anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln. My favorite piece of Lincoln trivia is this: Abraham Lincoln delivered only three speeches during his Presidency. (Back in those days, the State of the Union Address was submitted to Congress in writing and not delivered as a speech.) The three speeches were his two inaugural addresses and the Gettysburg address. Not a bad percentage.
