I’m an unapologetic fan of the District of Columbia, not only for the arts and culture but also for the history. There’s nothing like turning a random corner and stumbling across a building, monument or statue that honors a key moment in our country’s history. Take this latest find. Outside the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church is a hitching post that belonged to President Abraham Lincoln. President and Mrs. Lincoln attended church there, just three blocks from the White House, until he died on April 15, 1865. There are a thousand reminders like this one around our great city of its momentous past. (Photo credit: Ted Eytan)
