Just a note

From an article in today's LA Times, I learned about this site: The Lincoln Log: A Daily Chronology of the Life of Abraham Lincoln. For example, you can select "Today's Date in Lincoln's Life" and receive a listing of everything known about Lincoln's activities on a specific day throughout his years.

For example, "Monday, January 4, 1864. Point Lookout, Md., and Washington. Lincoln is honorary officer of Ladies Great National Sanitary Fair in Washington during January. Washington Chronicle, 4 January 1864." I wonder what the Ladies Great National Sanitary Fair was all about? Health and sanitation problems in cities?
