    That's very interesting. And with the renewed interest in all things Lincoln a nice edition from the culinary side of his life. Gingerbread cookies, huh.

        I strongly recommend these:

        David Herbert Donald's "Lincoln" biography.
        Garry Wills' "Lincoln at Gettysburg".
        And Doris Kearns Goodwin's "Team of Rivals".
