Abraham Lincoln’s a poet; we didn’t know it

Here’s another video from a reader who found an exceptional use of Google Book Search. This week’s installment comes from Samuel Wheeler, a graduate student at Southern Illinois University who’s writing a dissertation on the poetry of Abraham Lincoln.

Wheeler makes the challenge of researching Abraham Lincoln clear: with the possible exception of Jesus, he estimates that there’s been more books written about him than any other historical figure. Take a look at this video to find out how he used Book Search to find just the right material for his project.

On top of that, you can’t miss the slammin’ soundtrack.
