Baltimore, Maryland - Inaugural Journey
Lincoln travelled through the night; no longer making whistle stop speeches, but quietly passing through Baltimore's President Street Station, at President, Canton, and Aliceanna Streets, at about 3:30 a.m. Lincoln was transferred to the Camden Station at Camden and Howard Streets from the President Street Station by having his car pulled by horse down Pratt Street from one station to the other.

Did You Know?
Lincoln insisted on having the 1864 election in the midst of war. "You can not have free government without elections...if the rebellion could force us to forgo a national election, it might fairly claim to have already conquered and ruined us." Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Illinois
