Read Statement

Our teacher programs and resources explore the leadership and legacy of Abraham Lincoln and the city of Civil War Washington.

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!

We aim to build a community of teachers devoted to Lincoln’s legacy. Follow us on Twitter and join a group of like-minded teachers who share resources, ideas and inspiration.
