On this day, 200 years ago, two boys were born, an ocean apart, who would forever alter the course of the world. Just think about it for a second. Both the man who (is not nearly as perfect as many politicians like to remember - see: Emancipation Proclamation) paved the way to free (most) slaves in the divided Union and the man who single-handidly turned the scientific community on it's head (see: natural selection) began their incredible life journeys on this day, back in 1809. Talk about a day in history...Happy Birthday Abe and Charlie!
