“We want to make a difference”
Our President Lincoln stovepipe hat is currently on loan to the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, Texas.
Throughout the month of April, it will be on display in the
exhibit at the LBJ Library linking the civil rights legacies of Abraham Lincoln and Lyndon Johnson.
The Lincoln Family Home
His father was born in a log cabin and called from the humblest rank in life to preside over our nation during the most momentous period of its history. One generation later, Robert Todd Lincoln, the only child of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln to survive to adulthood, became Chairman of the Pullman Company, the largest manufacturing corporation at the turn of the 20th century. He built his Georgian Revival mansion in 1905 in the scenic village of Manchester. It became home to only Lincoln descendants until 1975, longer than any other Lincoln residence. It is the Great American Story.
