Vote on Upcoming Anniversaries

In the next 4 calendar years we will witness three major anniversaries:  the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth; the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War; and the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation going into effect.  Programs and celebrations for the Lincoln Bicentennial have already begun and will only intensify over the next two months.  Historic sites are already thinking ahead to the Civil War Sesquicentennial in 2011, and the anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation isn’t far behind. 

Let us know which anniversary you look forward to most!
