Expose the family to some history on Sunday, November 17, 2013 at 2pm at the Hanover Junction Train Station on the Rail Trail.  Abraham Lincoln (portrayed by Jim Hayney) will arrive by train, just like he did 150 years ago, to deliver the Gettysburg Address.  After spending some time meeting the public he will recite the Gettysburg Address.  The Hanover Junction Museum will be open during this event.  Walk, bike (via the Rail Trail) or drive to the Hanover Junction Train Station.  
In November of 1863 President Abraham Lincoln visited the Hanover Junction Train Station while heading to Gettysburg.  His funeral train also passed through in April of 1865.  
This seems like a fun way to share history with your children!  Will you be attending with your family?
