With Presidents Day coming this week there is a lot going on. Lincoln’s birthday is on Thursday February 12th and George Washington’s Birthday is on the 22nd. There is more to this week than long ago presidents’ birthday. Many channels will have specials in celebration of Lincoln’s 200th birthday. “Looking for Lincoln” will be on PBS channels on Wednesday February 11th and “Stealing Lincolns Body” will be on the History channel on February 16th. Check to your local listings for times when these two shows will be on.
Also there will be a Revolutionary Reenactment/living history event at Fort Ward on Sunday February 15th as well as a parade on Monday Febuary 16th. Both events will be held in Alexandria VA. I hope to post a summary with pictures and video of the Sunday event later next week. I have some video that was taken a few years ago within our media page of this blog.
