The Lincoln Forum

To enhance the understanding and preserve the memory of Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War.

Welcome to The Lincoln

The Lincoln Forum is an assembly of people who share a deep interest in the life and times of Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War era.

Through a roster of activities and projects including symposia, tours, student essay competitions, teacher scholarships, a newsletter and an annual award to recognize special contributions to the field of Lincoln studies, the Forum endeavors to enhance the understanding and preserve the memory of Abraham Lincoln.

This Web site was established to further our efforts by allowing visitors to become members of The Lincoln Forum and gain access to our latest news and events.
