Observe the anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination with a special evening tour entitled Death, Mourning, and Mrs. Lincoln. The tour will be offered at 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. the date of Lincoln’s funeral. Mrs. Lincoln suffered more loss than many women of her time. In this special tour, visitors will explore how the first lady’s experiences reflected the ways in which 19th century Americans coped with death. This program will feature artifacts and other historical sources that illustrate evolving funerary and mourning customs and unorthodox practices such as spiritualism. Reservations required. Admission $15 for individuals, $13 per person with a group of four or more, and $10 per person for members and their guests. Not recommended for children.
