Richard Norton Smith

Some have compared Richard Norton Smith to the Pale Rider who rides into town, and finds himself cast as savior. He takes advantage of the town's hospitality, and then rides off on the day of the big gunfight leaving the town to face its just punishment.

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, and Museum isn't about Richard Norton Smith, it's about Abraham Lincoln, and the United States which began in earnest with the Union victory of the Civil War.

Those flocking to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum are not doing so to meet Richard Norton Smith, they are pilgrims of Abraham Lincoln.

The Sun has not set on ALPLM - this institution is too busy being born to die.
