From the age of 8 my favorite subject has been Lincoln. I've always joked that growing up in Illinois it's a state law that you have to visit Springfield as a student. But his life has held a fascination in my mind that I can't explain. Studying his assassination also intrigued me simply because of the violent nature of it and the almost mythical stature it took on happening so soon after the end of the war and happening on Good Friday.

Studying battles and military matters doesn't speak to me as much, although I'll never forget my trip to Gettysburg.
