The Life of Abraham Lincoln (Webster's Spanish Thesaurus Edition)
Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of synonyms and antonyms for difficult and often ambiguous English words that are encountered in other works of literature, conversation, or academic examinations. Extremely rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority in the notes compared to words which are ?difficult, and often encountered? in examinations. Rather than supply a single synonym, many are provided for a variety of meanings, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of the English language, and avoid using the notes as a pure crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not noted on a page, chances are that it has been highlighted on a previous page. A more complete thesaurus is supplied at the end of the book; synonyms and antonyms are extracted from Webster's Online Dictionary.

Lincoln Memorial/Washington Monument, Aug 2009 - 10
I first encountered this man at the base of the steps leading up to the Lincoln Memorial. He and the young boy were looking around, in all directions. "Is that the White House?" he asked, gesturing in the general direction of the Washington Monument. "The tall building behind the monument?" I asked. "No, that's the U.S. Capitol." He said that he was a trucker, and had a delivery to make at a construction site a few blocks away -- pointing off to the side, where there were some cranes visible. "So I decided to bring my boy over here and show him." "You from around here?" I asked. "Nope. Forth Worth, Texas. 1,450 miles away." He and his son then trotted up the steps to see Lincoln up close. They came back down a few minutes later, and the man asked me, "What's all that writing on the two side walls?" "The one on the left is the Gettysburg Address," I told him, "and the one on the right is the Second Inaugural Address." When he looked puzzled, I said, "The speech he gave when he was elected the second time, in 1864." "Did you read it?" he asked. "Well, not up on the wall," I admitted. "But I've read it in books." "Oh," he said. "Well, back home, they told me that there were two misspelled words in that speech, and I should look and see if I could find them. But it was too long to read..." And with that, they headed off toward the Vietnam Memorial, and I didn't see them again... *********************************** How do you go about photographing something that's already been photographed a gazillion times, like statues or monuments or the Eiffel Tower? Well, I thought one possibility would be to catch some interesting shades of late-afternoon light -- so I showed up at the Lincoln Memorial, in downtown Washington, an hour before sunset. I'm so oblivious that I thought the statue of Lincoln would be facing west, and would thus catch the golden glow of the sun. But it faces east, which makes perfectly good sense when you realize that it's set up so that Lincoln is gazing along the length of the Reflecting Pool, toward the Washington Monument. And since the sun was already behind the backside of the Lincoln Memorial building, the inner room where Lincoln was sitting was already in deep shadow. Frustrated, I decided to create a few 5-shot HDR composites of the reflecting pool and the Washington Monument. And then I photographed the steps leading up to the Lincoln Memorial, with the happy coincidence of a jet airplane flying overhead to show the contrast between old and new. I also photographed a young teenage girl, who appeared to be pouting on a nearby park bench, as if to say she really didn't want to be there at all ... and that was about as much as I could do. I came back two days later at the beginning of the day, half an hour before sunrise. It was a good opportunity to get some dawn photos of the reflecting pool and the memorials, and it was also interesting to see the early-morning joggers and tourists. Indeed, I had two interesting little encounters while I was wandering around; I've provided the details in the comments for the relevant photos. I was hoping I might get some good photos of early-morning sunlight streaming into the Lincoln Memorial, but it quickly became evident that it would be another hour or two before the sun was high enough; and since the sky looked a little hazy near the horizon, I wasn't sure there would be any strong rays of sunlight anyway. So I decided that I'd had enough -- and by 6:30 AM, I was all done, and it was time to return to my hotel for breakfast before heading off to my "day job." I'm still hoping to get some good sunlight shots of the various buildings, but that will have to wait for some other day...

David Herbert Donald's Lincoln is a stunningly original portrait of Lincoln's life and presidency. Donald brilliantly depicts Lincoln's gradual ascent from humble beginnings in rural Kentucky to the ever- expanding political circles in Illinois, and finally to the presidency of a country divided by civil war. Donald goes beyond biography, illuminating the gradual development of Lincoln's character, chronicling his tremendous capacity for evolution and growth, thus illustrating what made it possible for a man so inexperienced and so unprepared for the presidency to become a great moral leader. In the most troubled of times, here was a man who led the country out of slavery and preserved a shattered Union -- in short, one of the greatest presidents this country has ever seen.
