Lincoln Bicentennial Goes Into Overdrive

As we get closer (just a few more days!) to the actual bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth, the pace of news coverage - about Lincoln himself and celebrations in DC and nationwide - is getting ramped up to a fever pitch.

Our new exhibit 'Abraham Lincoln: The Final Casualty of the War' - which Kathleen blogged about earlier - is included in the long list of exhibits in and around DC that are centered on the slain president. So, it's natural then that we're getting some collateral coverage (did I just coin that phrase?) in other write-ups of exhibits at Library of Congress or Smithsonian, or the re-opening at Ford's Theatre like in this article here. (Regrettably, the hyperlink they offer is incorrect. But the name and location is there.)

I'll try to make sure I post other links to worthwhile news coverage as it comes in.

Have you seen the new exhibit in the gallery yet? Are you planning a visit to DC and a visit to the Museum? Let us know about your experiences.

Museum Linked on Yahoo! Directory Blog Post

Some PR people call it 'current awareness' or 'reputation management' (easier to overbill for the service when the exaggerated amounts are associated with a fancy term, I guess) but I tend to call it what it is - reading or watching the news. In this case, news about the Museum, either in 'traditional' media or elsewhere in the blogosphere.

Thanks to Google, Yahoo!, Topix and Bloglines, and others, it's easy enough to monitor for mention of the Museum out there on the Internet, and it was one of those engines that led me to this blog post on Yahoo! today.

I'm not sure what to make of the Yahoo! blog post; I don't see an 'about' link to tell readers why the stream of posts is being written or published. That notwithstanding, it's great to see a link to the Museum, and the use of one of the Otis Historical Archives' very cool Flickr posts; in this case, a photo from the collections related to the 1918 influenza pandemic.

There is much more about influenza available on the Museum's Web site.
