Getting Lost and Finding the Past

By Erin Carlson Mast

In early June, Pew’s Heritage Philadelphia Program visited President Lincoln’s Cottage for a private tour of the Cottage and a discussion with our Director, Frank Milligan.

Christy Schneider, who participated in the Heritage Philadelphia Program at the Cottage, chronicled her experience from the groups’ experience trying to get to the Cottage to finding out new information about Lincoln and the people and events that were part of his ordinary and extraordinary times at the Cottage.
