Commemorate the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination with an evening tour entitled Death, Mourning, and Mrs. Lincoln. The guided tour will be offered at 5pm and 6pm on both the date that Lincoln was shot (April 14th) and the date of his death (April 15th).
Mrs. Lincoln suffered more loss than many women of her time. In this special tour, visitors will explore how the first lady’s experiences reflected the ways in which 19th century Americans coped with death. This program will feature artifacts and other sources that illustrate evolving funerary and mourning customs and unorthodox practices such as spiritualism.
Reservations required. Admission $15 for individuals, $13 per person with a group of four or more, and $10 per person for members and their guests. Not recommended for children. Call 859-233-9999 for reservations.
