If you fell for our April Fools’ Day gag…you’re in good company! It’s all in jest, of course. As George Washington wrote in 1786, “it is assuredly better to go laughing than crying thro’ the rough journey of life.”
Not to worry, friends. Contrary to this morning’s blog post, young Abraham Lincoln will NOT be joining us as a Nation Builder.

We hope you enjoyed watching the comments as much as we did. Until next year!
