Our programs and events build community, share groundbreaking scholarship, advance big ideas, and foster new understanding and dialogue about the vital part of American history that unfolded here and its relation to freedom today. Our programs fulfill and support the mission of President Lincoln’s Cottage, a nonprofit public charity.
