To continue my blogging while on the road (differentiated from the scheduled ones) let me share this Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park gift shop moment. 😉
I call the hat ‘Lincoln hat‘ because Abraham Lincoln is always pictured wearing it. However, it’s really called a top hat or stovepipe hat. It was very popular in the late 18th up to to the middle 20th century. It was associated with the upper class. By the end of World War II, it became a rarity. Only Uncle Sam still wears it with his traditional costume.
