Lincoln’s legacy lives on through the stories we share at our site and the stories we all share with each other today. Explore how we are continuing to celebrate and remember the stories of Abraham Lincoln!
In June and July 2014, Lincoln Home National Historic Site and the Old State Capitol State Historic Site partnered to present a series of five programs honoring the 50th Anniversary of the enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
In 2011, the National Park Service sponsored programming that commemorated the 150 anniversary of President-elect Abraham Lincoln's trip from Springfield, Illinois to Washington, DC. In this program, the NPS developed presentations revisiting each of the sixteen towns and cities at which Abraham Lincoln stopped.
From April 18 through May 3, 2015, the National Park Service commemorated the 150 anniversary of the funeral of Abraham Lincoln with a program called "Abraham Lincoln's Journey Home." This series of presentations honored his legacy in each of the major cities that held a funeral for Lincoln in 1865, from Washington, DC to Springfield, Illinois.
