What do Abraham Lincoln, Pelé and Vincent van Gogh have in common?” All three share an important newsworthyAbraham Lincoln image anniversary on November 19th.

Curious to learn more about president Abraham Lincoln, soccer great Pelé and artiswt Vincent van Gogh? Read to find out about these and other interesting tales that happened on November 19th.

         1493 – Christopher Columbus goes ashore on an island he first saw the day before. He names it San Juan Bautista (it is later renamed Puerto Rico, meaning “rich port”).

Hi Michelle - I wasn't previously aware of the "connection" between Abraham Lincoln, Pele and Vincent van Gogh.  I do know that today is my nephew's birthday.   I wonder if he is aware of this bit of trivia?
