John Pregler from The Lens of History.com will be presenting, “Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln Visit Dubuque”.
In 1859, Abraham Lincoln, legal counsel for the Illinois Central Railroad Company, hosted an inspection tour of over 705 miles of the company’s railroad properties. Joining Lincoln were a group of state and railroad officials and their families. This tour brought the group to Dunleith (present-day East Dubuque), Illinois and Dubuque, Iowa, where the travel party stayed at the Julien House hotel. This event tells the story surrounding their journey.
