Independence Hall, PA

431

And this is where Lincoln comes in. He gave a speech at this very spot during his inauguration journey to Washington. It just so happened to be Washington’s Birthday. Lincoln would find himself here again in 1865, unfortunately during his funeral procession, where his body was housed at the hall for visitors to pay their respects before finally being laid to rest in Springfield.
