Group Raising Funds for Lincoln Funeral Recreation
If you've ever seen a Lincoln funeral re-enactment, you know how great it is. But making that happen takes money. That's why the push to secure funds for the 2015 re-enactment is already underway.
Today, some of the folks involved dressed in Lincoln-era garb as they spoke about the event and the upcoming fundraiser.
On Tuesday, April 30, at Edwards Place, guests can meet and discuss the issues of the day with Lincoln's friends and associates, portrayed by historians and Civil War enthusiasts.
"Join me and others in supporting an event unlike any other to pay respects to our greatest president that this nation ever had," Springfield Mayor Michael Houston said. "It is time for us to make history come alive again in Springfield, Ill."
The event begins at 7 p.m. April 30 at Edwards Place. The cost is $50 per person and $75 for couples. It's tax-deductible.
