Happy birthday, Mr. Lincoln

Whether you’re a Lincoln enthusiast or simply want to take a moment to honor the 16th president on his birthday, the Mount Pulaski Courthouse will offer several opportunities to celebrate Abe’s 202nd birthday this weekend.

On Friday, Lincoln’s Farewell Address will be read at the courthouse to celebrate the 150th anniversary of both the speech, which marked Lincoln’s departure from Springfield and his inaugural journey to Washington, D.C., as president-elect, as well as the beginning of the American Civil War, which began in 1861 and lasted until 1865.
