"I hold myself without mock modesty, the humblest of all individuals that have ever been elevated to the Presidency....You have generously tendered me the united support of the great Empire State." - Abraham Lincoln speaking to the New York Legislature on February 18, 1861.President-elect Abraham Lincoln was greeted by a large, boisterous crowd on February 18, 1861, as he stopped in Albany on his way to his inauguration in Washington, D.C.In his speech at the old State House, the president-elect chose not to "enter into any explanation of any particular line of policy as to our present difficulties." Lincoln thought it was wise to keep his thoughts on the impending Civil War to himself until his inauguration some two weeks away.Lincoln later dined with Governor Edwin D. Morgan and spent the night at the Delavan House, located where the federal courthouse now stands on Broadway.Lincoln Commemorative Marker
