Abe Lincoln's Dream
Young Quincy is on a school tour of the White House when she discovers a tall bearded man in a stovepipe hat. They chat, share jokes, and compare dreams they have had. Together they float away and fly over the United States, ghost-Lincoln asking about the current state of our union: “Are the states united?” he asked. “Did that work out? Yes, that worked out fine.” she answers.
