Loyola Students Launch Interactive Website in Honor of Lincoln Bicentennial CHICAGO— Loyola University Chicago journalism students are celebrating the 200th birthday of one of our country’s greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln, by launching an interactive Website in his honor. Students enrolled in Professor John Slania’s course, Lincoln and Citizen Journalism, are studying Lincoln in contemporary society and creating a Web magazine packed full of articles, photographs, recorded audio, video, blogs, and much more. The site can be found at www.luc.edu/orgs/lincolnatloyola. “Journalism is shifting in a new direction. This is a wonderful opportunity for students who want to go into journalism, as well as many others fields, to get experience by reporting, writing and telling stories on multiple platforms,” Slania said. Organized as a newsroom within the classroom, the students act as an actual media center. They record living history and document Lincoln’s impact on America today while creating a compelling Web magazine that captures the essence of this famous president. The students hope to learn the history and importance of our country’s 16th president and share their findings as a contribution for Illinois’ statewide Lincoln Bicentennial celebration. This class is just one of many courses, presentations, speeches and lectures at Loyola in celebrations of the Bicentennial. Loyola is marking the event with a February 11, appearance of Pulitzer Prize winning author, Doris Kearns Goodwin presenting a lecture on “Lincoln and Leadership.” For additional information, contact John Slania, Journalism Program Director, at jslania@luc.edu.

It's a great event and great initiative following, I wish I had the same in my old school days, keep up the good work.

It is hard times and such an event will only deliver and represent what we as a people should truly be searching for, conversation and understanding and most important listening.

I agree with max although I'm not an american, but I admire Lincoln's personality from what I read and deserves special attention especially from students and young people.

I'd like to know what Abraham Lincoln would say about a same-sex couple getting married: http://tinyurl.com/marriageandgays. The issues are different and the same. That would be a worthy humanties dialogue.

Hi.. Hasan I must say that, really it’s an awesome article and the information that I got from this article.

It's great to see more homage being rightfully paid to one of our greatest presidents.

Unfortunately not all countries have such BIG presidents in the past. Succes.

I was raised in central Illinois "The land of Lincoln" I remember touring a home he lived in. It was very interesting how modest it was.

Posted by: bmather (bkmason09@gmail.com) on 03/12/2009

Lincoln truly was a dynamic reader. I heard that he was a very introverted person, but it just shows you what a little will power can do.

Posted by: bmather (chris.fraser@unb.ca) on 03/14/2009

I have to agree with you max, Lincoln is one of the greatest presidents.

Lincoln was a good president for bad times... regards!

Lincoln was the greatest president of all. No one else has faced what he did and accomplished so much. Great event!

Posted by: bmather (billed2234@hotmail.com) on 04/19/2009

I agree with bill. Greatest president of all time. Not good, but greatest. Obama has some problems to face, but I can't see any president dealing with what Lincoln did. Obama, Bush, Reagan, I just don't think they could have handled the situation.

Lincoln is not only a hero of US but of the world. Many people around the world admire him.

Oh, it's very good. He is a hero.

It's hard to compare people of different eras, but I think Lincoln sort of incarnates the best values of the American experience.

I am with you mike. Lincoln's personality definately get the credits and he is a great presidents.

There will not be another president like Lincoln. He was truly the greatest.

Posted by: bmather (jkinnish2@aol.com) on 06/15/2009

Lincoln was right on on not believing in waiting. We are always competing with other society. How can we wait and do nothing? Congress should always be in session.

Posted by: bmather (ryan@joolwe.com) on 06/16/2009

Lincoln was a great man and a great leader, he stood firmly in the face of challenges and helped America get out of serious problems.

Most Americans regard Abraham Lincoln as the nation’s greatest president. In my view, Lincoln was the true ‘philosophical statesman,’ and it is hard to put any other president — not even George Washington, or JFK — in the same category as Abraham Lincoln. He is simply the greatest practitioner of democratic statesmanship that America and the world have yet produced. ~korcula

Lincoln began his political career in 1832 at the age of 23... Lincoln is the great American history in itself..

The US wouldn't be the country it is today without past Great Presidents such as Lincoln. I think its important not to forget the role he played in History.

Posted by: bmather (quadrantvans@googlemail.com) on 07/06/2009

President Lincoln helped the US to end slavery and should be remembered and celebrated as a great President.

Posted by: bmather (jeffreygognod@googlemail.com) on 07/06/2009

Lincoln was one of those rare men that changed the face of the planet for the rest of time, I think Obama has the potential to reach one tenth of the greatness of Lincoln and that is high praise indeed.

I wish our president is more like big Abe :)

William H. Herndon, Abraham Lincoln's law partner and biographer, made a record of "secreat and private things" about Lincoln in two memorandum books that long ago disappeared. Now diary entries have materialized, written by a woman who saw the memorandum books in 1866, and who recorded her shocked reactions to accounts of "profligacy" and "debauchery." A distinguished Lincoln scholar describes the discovery, and considers anew the collision of privacy and history.

I heard that Lincoln never lied. I find this hard to believe as he was a politican which must be one of the hardest jobs in the world to not lie.

Posted by: bmather (serpicojames2@gmail.com) on 11/19/2009

Lincoln was my favorite president. He definitely deserves this blog.
