Birthday wishes

Hundreds of birthday cards addressed to former President Abraham Lincoln were delivered to the Old State Capitol in Springfield, Ill. The Illinois Bicentennial Commission partnered with the U.S. Postal Service in the fall of 2008 to create a mailing address in anticipation of the cards made by children to honor Lincoln's 200th birthday on Feb. 12.
