We offer teachers many ways to bring President Abraham Lincoln into your classroom. Adapt our lesson plans to engage your students in learning about Lincoln’s assassination and its lasting legacy. Use our oratory resources to improve your students’ public-speaking skills. Attend a summer fellowship exploring Civil War Washington. And so much more!
