Lecture in Louisville to Focus on Abraham Lincoln's Multiple Burials
An upcoming lecture in Louisville will focus on the many burials and viewings of President Abraham Lincoln's body after his death.
The lecture by Clay W. Stuckey is called "The Trials and Tribulations of the Corpse of Abraham Lincoln."
A release from the Filson Historical Society says Lincoln's body has been moved 14 times since it first arrived at the state house in Springfield, Illinois, for his last funeral. Stuckey will also describe the necessity of twice rebuilding the Lincoln tomb. It will feature pictures from the Lincoln Presidential Library and behind-the-scenes photos at the tomb.
The lecture is March 10 at the library at Oxmoor Farm in Louisville.
