Well, at school from 8 to about 8, so no writing--I am going to reread all the Pinkerton stuff and keep working on the "Interregnum" chapter, but tonight, not so much! Here's a picture of EE on a horse. This is the only one I have seen of min on a horse, but apparently he had one, as his father came to DC to get it after EE's death. Cost his dad $150.00, and that was in 1861!! If anyone knows what his horse's name was, that would be great--tell me!! The horse from his childhood was called Mink. Hope I have time to write tomorrow--we will see!


  1. Well, that is a fine horse indeed! He looks like a "Lightning" I think that's what his name was. I'm not really sure, but it's fitting. I will check back tomorrow to see if you have written anything new. I will also look for the real name of his horse. That's a lot of money for a horse in 1861 jezzzzzzz! You know who!!!

  2. Thanks! I got the comment, and laughed about the horsey jokes & references--no buffalo here--yet!
