Would Lincoln Have Attended the 2016 Republican Convention?

Kenneth Peres

I recently met President Abe Lincoln in Washington DC during the 152nd anniversary celebration of the Battle of Fort Stevens. I didn’t expect to see him – but there he was, dressed in his famous frock coat even on this hot day. He was an imposing figure – his height accentuated by his top hat. He was gracious enough to pose for a photograph and discuss current events.
