A big week for semi-holidays (the ones where you still have to go to work) with Fat Tuesday, Ash Wednesday and Valentines Day all clumped up for our attention. Today, however, it’s the birthday (actual) of Abraham Lincoln, a man who spent some quality time here in Illinois before moving on to Washington D.C. and never looking (or coming) back. He was here long enough to get on the license plate and the street sign. Here’s a list of songs inspired by the Great Emancipator:
It’s the Cadillac of Lincoln songs!
Honest Abe would have cranked this one.
A Civil War classic.
He was said to be good with a blade.
Rhymes with Decatur.
He always kept good company.
