    Excellent article. Glad to see something like this happening with our wonderful historic homes.

    It is very fitting that you are helping preserve this historical site. As you know, Lincoln’s Cottage and other historical buildings are within the “Soldier’s Home” complex. The latter is coveted by developers because, in part, for years the Department of Defense has refused to increase from $0.50 the amount that is withheld from enlisted members salaries. This fact juxtaposed with some administrative mismanagement, this collusion with developers, and politics have placed the Home in jeopardy. What a “tribute” to these elderly veterans.
