Baltimore, Maryland - Inaugural Journey

Baltimore, Maryland

February 23, 1861

Lincoln traveled 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.
