Presidents Day for Petites

Petite and Lincoln

If you are new to The Petite Stag, you might not know that we has some very serious love for Abraham Lincoln.  I am pretty sure had our first born been a male child, Lincoln would have been his name.  Lincoln has been a favored stuffie of my petite since she was little, she took him to her very first show and tell at pre-school and it was adorable.

So many books have been written about Abraham Lincoln, over 15,000 books with more being written every day.  In 2012 a group of historians in Washington DC put a tribute together that visualizes what 7,000 of the books written about Lincoln would look like in a stunning tower.  The “books” are pieces of aluminum with the book covers printed on them towering 34 feet in the lobby of Ford’s Theatre Center for Education and Leadership in Washington, D.C.
