Lincoln’s Lebanon returns

Lebanon —  

Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States of America, made two brief stops in Boone County in February of 1861. As he was traveling from Springfield, Ill., to Washington, D.C., to be inaugurated as president, Lincoln spoke to a crowd from the back of his train car in both Lebanon and Zionsville.
