200th Anniversaries

This has nothing to do with journalism but some good stories might come out of this.

What a year.

This is the 200th Anniversary of a poet who changed literature, a scientist who changed how we look at life and a politician who saved the Union.

The poet: Edgar Allen Poe, Born: January 19, 1809
The Scientist: Charles Darwin, Born February 12, 1809
The Politician: Abraham Lincoln, Born February 12, 1809
