This year is the 200th anniversary of the 16th President of the United States Abraham Lincoln. To honor this event the National Postal Museum (part of the Smithsonian) has an online exhibition called “From Postmaster to President”. I think you will find this fascinating.

Here is the link,

    Thanks for reading. I am really enjoying your True Crime site “Murder She Wrote”. That’s one of my interests too.

    I will listen to the link now. Lincoln is one of my faves. I look forward to reading more about him.

    That stamp is a great find. Is there a website with stamps from yesteryear?
