Sweet, sweet revenge, Rebecca!
In addition to Abraham: The Musical and at least four songs from The Civil War, Abe Lincoln remained a President with a song in his heart, trumping the cowardly, tone-deaf Wilson at every turn. Experience the man, the music, the Emancipator!
Here you can read about (or purchase) “We’ll Sing to Abe Our Song“, sheet music about Lincoln, Emancipation, and the Civil War. This “includes more than two hundred sheet-music compositions that represent Lincoln and the war as reflected in popular music”.
More sheet music can be found here (or here).
Campaign songs include the Lincoln Quick Step:
“Honest Old Abe has split many a rail
He is up to his work, and he’ll surely not fail
He has guided his flat-boat thro’ many a strait
And watchful he’ll prove at the helm of the State.”
Abraham Lincoln School also has a Fight Song:
Cheer, cheer for our Lincoln School,
Doing our best is always the rule.
Being number one it’s true,
Keeps us the best in Region 2!
Whether the odds are great or small,
Our Lincoln School is the best of all.
Proudly loyal sons and daughters
Worked towards this victory.
And wow, look! A children’s song about him!
In addition to the music that fuelled his soul, Abe remains on the top due to many other endearing tributes, including video games, a virtual library, a slightly morbidmuseum exhibit, a crossword puzzle, a book of humorous essays, a movie called Young Mr. Lincoln (featuring Henry Fonda as Abe Lincoln). He’s also been credited with The Birth of a Modern Empire. For more Lincoln goodness, check out Abraham Lincoln Online. He brings up 827 Search Results at Amazon.com (while Woodrow Wilson returns only 339!)
There are thousands upon thousands more Google search results to explore further, if you need more evidence. Face it, Rebecca. Lincoln could whup Woodrow’s bootie any day of the week! If they weren’t both dead, of course.
