We regularly hold events to commemorate Lincoln’s 1859 speech here in Dayton and to celebrate his legacy more generally. Those events include speeches and presentations, reenactments, commemorative demonstrations, and other events. For more on upcoming events, please contact us. 

As part of our commemorative events, we are firm in emphasizing that slavery was the cause of the Civil War, that slavery was an evil that had to be eradicated, and that nearly everybody alive at the time benefited somehow from the institution, even those who lived in the North. We believe it is crucial that history be looked at with clear eyes and no sentimentality. We invite you to join us in our mission of preserving Lincoln’s legacy through honest, forthright discussion and scholarship.

Forthright discussion is important in lots of areas of life, including when making your house a home. We encourage you to discuss your dreams with a licensed contractor who can help make them a reality. You can find the best kitchen remodeling help online.
