   This year marks the 200th Anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s
birth. Thousands of events are being held state-wide to honor the life and
times of the country’s 16th President.

   The Calumet City Historical Society is hosting a Lincoln Celebration on
Sunday, May 31, at 1:00 pm. The event is free and all Calumet City residents
are invited to attend. The day will begin at the corner of State Street and
State Line Road, near the location where President Lincoln’s funeral train
passed through Calumet City’s border at 10:15 am on May 1, 1865, when the
area was known as Sobieski Park. A historical marker will be placed at the
location with information about the President’s funeral train and other area
history. The marker is co-sponsored by the Calumet City Historical Society,
the Illinois State Historical Society and the City of Calumet City.

  Following the ceremony, the Historical Society will host a reception at the
Calumet City Cultural Center, 760 Wentworth Ave. The event will feature
traditional costumes, food and entertainment of the Lincoln Era. Attendees
can view museum displays and watch a live musical performance by the
Battlefield Balladeers, a group of musicians who will perform music of the
                                                                                      A picture of the train that carried President Lincoln’s body from Washington, D.C. to

been planning this celebration for almost a year and a half,” said Warner.
“This event marks a historical time in American history and depicts a part
of local history,” she added. The day will also feature posting and retiring
of the flags by the Ninth Indiana Civil War Honor Guard and St. Andrew the
Apostle Church Boy Scout Troop 268.

  In addition to the celebration, the Historical Society coordinated an essay
contest in area schools. The topic of this year’s contest was “Why Do You
Think Abraham Lincoln Was a Great Man?” Hundreds of area students
submitted entries and the winners will read their submissions at the event.
They will also be awarded US Savings Bonds for their efforts.

     According to the History Channel, the train carrying Lincoln’s body
traveled through 180 cities and seven states on its way to Lincoln’s home
state of Illinois. Scheduled stops for the special funeral train were published
in newspapers. At each stop, Lincoln’s coffin was taken off the train, placed
on an elaborately decorated horse-drawn hearse and led by solemn
processions to a public building for viewing. In cities as large as Columbus,
Ohio, and as small as Herkimer, New York, thousands of mourners flocked to
pay tribute to the slain president. In Philadelphia, Lincoln’s body lay in state
in the east wing of Independence Hall, the same site where the Declaration
of Independence was signed. Newspapers reported that people had to wait
more than five hours to pass by the President’s coffin in some cities.

  Lincoln’s funeral train was dubbed “The Lincoln Special.” His portrait was
fastened to the front of the engine above the cattle guard. Approximately              The historical marker that will be placed at the corner of State Street and State Line Road.
300 people accompanied Lincoln’s
body on the 1,654-mile journey,
including his eldest son Robert. Also
on the train was a coffin containing
the body of Lincoln’s son Willie,
who had died in 1862 at the age of
11 of typhoid fever during Lincoln’s
second year in office. Willie’s body
had been disinterred from a plot
in Washington, D.C. after Lincoln’s
death so he could be buried
alongside his father at the family
plot in Springfield.
