This is what 15,000 Books about Abraham Lincoln looks Like
A sculpture in the new Ford's Theater Center for Education and Leadership is three stories tall and made up of 15,000 books about America's beloved, slain president Abraham Lincoln. The new museum is located across from the Ford's Theater and next to the house where Lincoln actually died.
This is a really timely piece because yesterday I thought up a joke about Abraham Lincoln. My wife always wants to sit in a booth when we go to restaurants (yes we go to very exclusive, booth filled restaurants) and I always have to say "Can we get a booth." Well the joke goes like this "Abraham Lincoln goes to the Ford Theater and asks for a booth and then John Wilkes Booth..." you see where this is going don't you? My wife thought it was too soon.
