Happy 206th Birthday(s), Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln
While, from their quite different upbringings, one pursued the law and politics and the other science, they both — through their intelligence, passion, and sheer determination — left the world a better and more enlightened place than it was when they entered it.
It would be doing a grave disservice to the accomplishments of either man — each, it must be acknowledged, still controversial in some circles — to try to summarize them here. Hopefully, you’re at least passingly acquainted with the theory of evolution and the United States Civil War on your own.
Where we can be of great service, though, is in directing you to the PeekYou profiles of these two, immeasurably influential men; from where you’ll be led to essays, videos, websites, and a vast array of media discussing, analyzing, and educating about their lives, achievements, and enduring impacts.
