      I think this is just so interesting because it is quite curious that so many world leaders would evoke the same man so frequently. I think this is an incredibly interesting spin on Lincoln's legacy. It can be difficult to add a global perspective when you are teaching something like AP US history but it really drives home the point that globalism is important and should be taught whenever possible.
    Abraham Lincoln's Bicentennial! This year is the year of Lincoln and Lincoln has hundreds of books written about him. What is very interesting about this thesis, however, it takes on a global history perspective. I bet you never thought Lincoln mattered that much outside of the United States? In honor of the bicentennial, I couldn't resist posting at least one resource on the man. I also enjoy the fact that it is a podcast. Podcasts are the future and teachers need to embrace the possibilities. Enjoy.
