The Military Road School Preservation Trust and the National Park Service invite you to attend Lincoln-Thomas Day, a historic day designated by the National Federation of Colored Women’s Clubs of America in 1924. The historic event honors President Abraham Lincoln and Mrs. Elizabeth Proctor Thomas, whose family owned the property where Fort Stevens was constructed during the American Civil War
These two disparate individuals were folk heroes to the National Federation of Colored Women’s Clubs of America who designated Lincoln-Thomas Day a national day of remembrance in 1924. The commemoration was revived 7 years ago by alumni and friends of the Military Road School, founded in 1864 in a barracks at Fort Stevens.
Enjoy the 96th Annual Lincoln-Thomas Day at the comfort and safety of your home.
