Via College Fix:

Students at a public university in Illinois, the home state of arguably the most famous and influential president in American history – Abraham Lincoln – can only guess whether the 16th president was a Republican or a Democrat.

The video was filmed Friday near a historic building that’s part of Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, a structure that includes a plaque that labels Lincoln a Democrat. Installed in 1905, the plaque states: “This building is dedicated to public service honoring the memory of Abraham Lincoln   Democrat.”

For the record, Lincoln was a Republican.  But you already knew that, didn't you?
