Brittany L. Griggs
Brittany Griggs is the fourth of five daughters. She recalls what fun it was to have so many sisters growing up. Her most vivid memories are of playing ball and tag in their large yard, climbing trees, having their own clubs.
She grew up in Hodgenville, a small town, population about 9,000, an hour or so south of Louisville, famous as Abraham Lincoln’s birthplace. Brittany will tell you that nearly everything in Hodgenville has a Lincolnesque edge to it. “A large statue of a sitting Lincoln dominates the town square,” she says. "There’s a Lincoln Boulevard, a Lincoln Parkway and a Lincoln National Bank. Every fall, they have a Lincoln Days Celebration.” more
