REMINDER: Abraham Lincoln's NY Walking Tour This Saturday


Explore Abraham Lincoln's New York on the 150th Anniversary
of the day his body lay in state at City Hall

A Walking Tour with James Nevius
author of
Footprints in New York and Inside the Apple: A Streetwise History of New York City
Saturday, April 25, at 1:00 p.m.
$20 per person (or include a copy of Footprints in New York for an additional $10 per person)
On April 25, 1865, Abraham Lincoln’s funeral procession wended its way through Manhattan so that the president could lay in state at City Hall. Just ten days earlier, the president had been assassinated at Ford’s Theater in Washington and his murderer, John Wilkes Booth, was still on the loose.
Using the Abraham Lincoln chapter of James and Michelle Nevius's most recent book, Footprints in New York, as a starting point, we will walk the streets that Lincoln knew in New York, visiting spots connected with his rise to the presidency and ending at City Hall Park, where tens of thousands of mourners gathered to pay their respects 150 years earlier. Stops will include the Cooper Union, Haughwout’s china store, one of Mathew Brady’s studios, and reminders of the Civil War Draft riots.
Space is limited and reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
