Crossword #3: Hail to the Chiefs


puzzle grid with LincolnThis special puzzle hits the electronic street in plenty of time for you to finish it before Presidents’ Day. This is my third attempt to construct a creditable crossword. I believe this one is free of flaws (egregious ones, at least). I will continue to believe this until one is pointed out to me.

A feature of this puzzle is that it contains fourteen related clues (each marked with a perky little asterisk). Those of you who thrive on challenges may wish to attempt these first. Anyone able to answer twelve of them in this way will have done very well indeed. Thirteen is achievable. To answer all fourteen will necessarily involve a bit of luck.
