songs for Lincoln and FDR

This week marks the 150th anniversary of the assassination of Abe Lincoln…and the 70th anniversary of the death of FDR. Those traumatic tragedies helped make these presidents cultural icons and both inspired a lot of song and poetry. To observe these anniversaries, we’ll listen to these songs and poems. They provide windows into American hearts and minds.
