Today, January 20, 2009, Barack Obama is going to be sworn in as the nation’s first African-American president. On Saturday, January 17, 2009, he undertook an historical whistle-stop journey by train, which symbolically links him to our nation’s first President, Abraham Lincoln. Like Lincoln, who traveled by rail from Philadelphia to Washington on the last leg of his journey to be sworn in for his first term in 1861, Obama too had traveled from the birthplace of the nation’s democracy to the capital city. On his way to DC, he made a historic stop in Wilmington, Delaware, where Delaware native Vice-president elect Joe Biden joined him in his journey. I am fortunate to be a part of documenting this event.
