Very good, Gene! Yes, the man is Carl Sandburg. But the lady having a drink with him on the couch was not Dorothy Kunhardt. The correct lady was not known as an author.

How is St. Giles church in Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire UK connected to Lincoln?

RE: Extra Credit Questions
In 1860 Lincoln told John Locke Scripps, "Why, it is a great piece of folly to attempt to make any­thing out of my early life. It can all be con­densed into a single sentence, and that sentence you will find in Gray's 'Elegy'—‘The short and simple annals of the poor.' That's my life and that's all you or anyone else can make of it."

Thomas Gray wrote Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard while he was in the churchyard of St. Giles Church.

RE: Extra Credit Questions
Well done, Roger. Its quite a long poem but very reminiscent of Englishness. Many phrases have been borrowed from it. Paths of glory. Far from the madding crowd.

Of course its far more than just 'Englishness'. Its about how 'ordinary' people hold within them the capability to achieve greatness. And 'great ' people are destined to the same end as the rest of us.
