Lincoln and Corn

IMG_1187-001  On this 150th anniversary of the assassination of President Lincoln, I am posting this picture of the program at Mercer Museum that was presented in a very cold log cabin President’s Day 2015.  There was snow and ice in the small hearth when I arrived that was stubborn to melt even with a fire started.  Corn was the predominant crop in Kentucky and Indiana when Abe was a boy and it provided food for humans and animals. Thomas Lincoln (Abe’s Father) had to leave behind 40 bushels of corn in Kentucky when Abe was 7 when he moved the family to Indiana.  The table is set for the production of corn dodgers and hominy.
