On the road with President Lincoln in Kentucky

I’m off with 40 some Ohio University Southern students and community members visiting sites related to our 16th president Abraham Lincoln.

Our tour includes a stop at the
Mary Todd Lincoln house in Lexington KY then we motor west to Hodgenville KY. Planning stops are Lincoln’s birthplace at Sinking Springs farm, his boyhood home at Knob Creek and the Lincoln Museum. They’ll be plenty of time to visit the shops in quaint downtown Hodgenville.

We’ll overnight in Elizabethtown KY and start fresh in the morning with visits to the Sarah Bush Johnson cabin and Lincoln Heritage house.

Then it’s a short journey over to Bardstown KY with stops at the
Civil War in the Western Theater and Women in the Civil War museums. After a few hours to browse the exhibits it back on the coach for a journey to Horse Cave, KY

We arrive in Horse Cave in time for lunch before attending a live performance entitled
Abraham Lincoln at the Kentucky Repertory Theater.

The curtain closes so it’s time to board our Fellowship Tours coach and depart for the “River Cities”.
