Celebrate Lincoln!


FEBRUARY 4, 2017
AN INNS OF THE GETTYSBURG AREA EVENT

Join us on Saturday February 4, 2017 for a celebration of Abraham Lincoln and his time in Gettysburg.

Our Celebrate Lincoln event tells the story of President Lincoln's dedication of the National Cemetery on November 19, 1863 and the background behind the world famous Gettysburg Address. We’ll start the day with a tour the historic Train Station where President Lincoln arrived in town and the Wills House where he spent the night of Nov. 18. Both properties are restored and give an interesting preview to the luncheon presentation by John McTague, a Licensed Town Guide, who will take us on a virtual tour of the National Cemetery, which will prepare us for a self-guided tour of the cemetery after lunch.
