President’s Day

Chris Farrell Feb 16, 2009

Have a good President’s Day.

Yesterday, at the newly reopened Smithsonian Museum of American History, I went to a small, special exhibit on Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. It had the document, as well as letters Lincoln wrote to various general’s and other to explain his decision. It was moving.
The museum is terrific, and it wandering through it with my Mom and my sons for an afternoon was a good way to celebrate the holiday.

Back to posting on personal finance questions tomorrow.
