Preservation Nation: ‘I See The President’- How the Lincoln Ideas Forum Expands Abraham Lincoln’s Legacy
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s untimely death, President Lincoln’s Cottage created an array of programs examining the enduring legacy of his life and ideas, including a special exhibit, a live retracing of Lincoln’s horseback commute, a memorial tribute inspired by 19th-century mourning practices, and the first annual Lincoln Ideas Forum on April 10th.
Executive Director Erin Carlson Mast shared a recap of the Lincoln Ideas Forum with Preservation Nation, the official blog of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
