John Hay (1838–1905) was an American statesman and official whose career in government stretched over almost half a century. After graduation from Brown University in 1858, Hay read law in his uncle's office in Springfield, Illinois, adjacent to that of Abraham Lincoln. Hay worked for Lincoln's successful presidential campaign, and became his assistant private secretary at the White House. Through the years of the American Civil War, Hay was close to Lincoln, and stood by his deathbed after the President was shot at Ford's Theatre.

Lincoln. Steven Spielberg's latest film that will probably go down as another "epic", based on the story of the All-American-Great, President Abraham Lincoln and his mighty feat to abolish the law of slavery towards black people. Daniel Day-Lewis leads in another shining, outstanding, performance that defines the term of "acting" as Abraham Lincoln. With Sally Field in the role of his wife Mary Todd Lincoln and great lineup of supporting actors including: William Seward (David Strathairn, Robert Lincoln (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), W.N. Bilbo (James Spader), Preston Blair (Hal Holbrook), Thaddeus Stevens (Tommy Lee Jones), Robert Latham (John Hawkes), John Hay (Joseph Cross) and Ulysses S. Grant (Jared Harris). The acting made the movie great but in my honest opinion it was the way in which the story was put together which was its major fall-back.

Fact of the day- The English word 'tycoon' comes from a Japanese word that means 'great lord.' The Japanese word Taikun means 'great lord.' Commodore Perry brought the word to the United States in 1857 when he returned from his travels. It gained popularity in the United States when two aides of Abraham Lincoln, John Nicolae and John Hay, took to calling Lincoln a tycoon as a joke. It would later spread to use in the business world, which soon became its normal usage. A tycoon is generally someone well known in the business world who has dominated an area of business. They are powerful and have great wealth. Other words to describe a tycoon might be a magnate, czar, mogul, baron, or oligarch. It generally implies a great deal of power.
