Mr. Lincoln returns to Cincinnati

I had heard about this event a couple of weeks ago and have planned to attend (depending on Mother Nature's cooperation - she has not been in a good mood in this region so far this winter) and here's a nice description of it from the Ohio Civil War 150 blog.


Abraham Lincoln is coming (back) to Cincinnati

It takes place on February 12 at 7:00 pm (that information is buried  a bit in the article.) 

It should be pretty neat and for anyone who has not been to the Cincinnati Museum Center, Union Terminal - the home of the museum - is a really neat old building. This would be a good excuse to see it. The article includes links to get more information on it.




 

The event on February 12 is to honor Lincoln's 1861 journey to Washington D.C., but this illustration is a lithograph of Lincoln's earlier speech in Cincinnati from 1859 (see the balcony on the right side of the image) and is courtesy of the Cincinnati Museum Center's site, http://www.cincymuseum.org/
