WASHINGTON (AP) - Four new postal stamps highlighting the personal history of Abraham Lincoln will be released today. Later this week, the nation celebrates what would be Lincoln's 200th birthday.
The 42-cent stamps depict Lincoln as a rail-splitter, a lawyer, a politician and a president.
This morning, a ceremony marking the release of the stamps will be held in Springfield, Ill., where he's buried.
Lincoln was born February 12th, 1809, in Kentucky. He went on to become the 16th president and led the country through the Civil War.
