Obama to Use the Lincoln Bible

As many people know, for his inauguration today, Obama will be using the same bible used by Abraham Lincoln. According to the Library of Congress, it is not uncommon for members of Congress to request bibles from the library for various occasions. However, it appears that this is the first time that a president has ever requested the Lincoln bible for his inauguration. The Library of Congress has recently posted some high resolution photos of the Lincoln bible. If you're interested, you can see them and read more at this link. http://www.loc.gov/blog/?p=410
