Commemorative Stamp set issued by the US Postal Service to celebrate the Lincoln bicentennial. Buy only what you need or want to keep because postage is going up to 44 cents in May! Yet another increase with no added service.

When I was in school we celebrated this iconic President's birthday every February 12th. Now we have Presidents' Day which is celebrated next Monday so we can have a long weekend. It combines Lincoln's birthday and George Washington's birthday (February 22nd). I don't think children are taught the true dates for each President's actual birthday. What a shame.
Happy Birthday Honest Abe!
