If you're a state employee in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Illinois or Missouri, today's a state holiday for you! Most places, however, long ago merged Lincoln's special day with George Washington's, creating Presidents Day.

Meanwhile, we're preparing for our huge Abraham Lincoln's Birthday Celebration -- you know, splitting rails, wearing stove-pipe hats, freeing some slaves.
