Pop Culture and History Collide

The caption reads:
"Steampunk Lincoln not only frees the slaves, but he does it with a good dollop of awesome"

There have been many commemorations of Lincoln this year. It's the bicentennial of his birth and everybody wants to get in on the action. Even devotees of the literary form Steampunk.

Gotta love it when people go to such lengths to re-imagine Lincoln as a Victorian-era robot superhero. And people say history's boring.

Robo-Lincoln is awesome. You have to work that into one of your lectures somehow.
