Wild guess; perhaps he trained as a preacher.

RE: Extra Credit Questions
The answer to this question was in Ed Steers' speech at the Surratt Conference Saturday. Thus, this particular question is for those folks who were not present.

Within 5, how many total statues of Abraham Lincoln are there in countries other than the United States?

RE: Extra Credit Questions
Let's try one more with the same rules as the previous question.

How many statues of Lincoln are there worldwide (within 10)?

RE: Extra Credit Questions
Close enough, Steve. During his talk at the Surratt Conference Dr. Steers mentioned there were 149 Abraham Lincoln statues in the world, and that 28 of these were in foreign countries.

RE: Extra Credit Questions
Please...no googling.

This man, who has been previously mentioned on this forum, met Abraham Lincoln during his presidential years. He noted the following:

"I saw this kind-hearted, noble man several times during the war. On two occasions I was present at public receptions given by him. Tall in stature, long-limbed, with an honest, homely, and sad face of which his very soul seemed to speak, he had a kind word and genial smile for all, however lowly, who approached him.

Taking my hand in his with a firm, full grasp, his words were, "How do you do sir? I am glad to see you."


Whose words are these?

RE: Extra Credit Questions
I agree, Dennis. It does. However, that is not the correct answer.
