Abraham Lincoln Research Site

Abraham Lincoln Research Site. Do you know a lot about an American President? If so, do you want to go online and take reference questions about him and answer them for free from whoever submits them? If so, you may find this site of interest.

Roger Norton has had this site on the web since 1996. He writes, "I am not an author or an historian; rather I am a former American history teacher who enjoys researching Abraham Lincoln's life and accomplishments. If you have a specific Lincoln question that you would like me to research for you, please e-mail me using the link near the bottom of the page. I cannot answer broad questions, only very specific ones. I will try to find the answer and get back to you as soon as I possibly can."

The site itself has a ton of information on Abraham Lincoln. The three main sections of this website are the Abraham Lincoln Research Site, Abraham Lincoln’s Assassination, and the Mary Todd Lincoln Research Site. The site is well documented with references to dozens of print resources.

Go ahead and look around. It is a nice place to visit. However, I do not think I am going to follow in Norton's shoes. Unless you stop by the Reference Desk at my library, I am not going into the Presidential reference question for fun game. But I do admire Mr. Norton for doing so and I hope he is answering lots of Lincoln questions.
