Legacy Projects > Indiana Commemorates the Lincoln Funeral Train Sesquicentennial Indiana Commemorates the Lincoln Funeral Train Sesquicentennial

Indiana claims Abraham Lincoln as her own, and the death of the 16th president affected Hoosiers deeply. The Lincoln Funeral Train passed through Indiana in April 1865.

The Indiana Historical Bureau (IHB) is promoting the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s death and funeral train journey from Washington, D.C. to Springfield, Illinois. The Indiana State House Tour Office, in collaboration with the Indiana Commission on Public Records is planning two interactive programs commemorating the Lincoln Funeral Train.

The Funeral Train Sesquicentennial project honors Lincoln’s life and celebrates his legacy in Indiana. The web portion of this project is accessible worldwide, and commemorative activities being held around the state will allow Hoosiers to also get involved in person.
