We went to see the movie "Lincoln" a few weeks ago. It was a good movie but I was not impressed. The cast did a good job of acting the roles they were assigned to but the screenplays were typical of Hollywood drama. I am glad the movie did not show when Lincoln was assassinated. The movie was about the final months of the president, how he tried to heal the country from the war and the division, there was no need for the details of his death.
There are two of Lincoln busts overlook a bend north of Scranton, Iowa. If we did not have the guidebook, we probably would never find the monuments and thought they were just part of the cornfields. Someone or a very dedicated group took good care of the busts because they look good having been put in placed since 1924.
