Darwin and Lincoln - twin peaks

I've been highlighting the Darwin bicentennial here (as appropriate for an evolution focused blog), much like the British media, while much of the US media has been celebrating the Lincoln bicentennial this week. There are even some (as I pointed out recently) drawing parallels and connections between the two great men in terms of their impacts on the world at large. The February 2009 issue of Smithsonian Magazine is covering both with an interesting set of articles about what the two men born 200 years ago today have meant for the generations following in (or shying away from) their footsteps.
