"We are united in one feeling for the Union. We believe in...every star and stripe of the glorious flag." On these tracks Abraham Lincoln stopped in Lafayette and spoke those Unifying words on Feb 11, 1861 on his "Whistle Stop Tour" en route to Washington D.C. for his presidential inauguration. In the early morning of May 1st 1865 citizens of Lafayette lined these tracks to mourn the loss to our nation as the Abraham Lincoln Funeral Train made its way to Springfield, Ill. Dedicated in October to the citizens of Lafayette, Indiana as a lasting memorial and tribute to our rich history.
