MORRISTOWN, NJ - Macculloch Hall Historical Museum is hosting a program for children on Monday February 19 titled, "Abraham Lincoln Remembered".

Kids can learn about Lincoln’s whistle-stop train trip that began on February 11, 1861 when he traveled from his home in Springfield, Illinois to Washington, DC, where he took the presidential oath of office and began his first term as president. During the event, families will trace Lincoln's journey through seven states on a large floor map, use "travel cards" to discover significant events that took place including the role Detective Allan Pinkerton had in protecting the president-elect and will design a booklet on Abraham Lincoln with images and famous quotes.

The program is Free for adult chaperones and $6 members; $8 non-members.
