Join fellow bed and breakfast guests for the 21st Annual Celebrate Lincoln event sponsored by the Inns of the Gettysburg Area.
Your Lincoln Celebration starts at 11am at the Dobbin House Tavern where John McTague, a Licensed Twon Guide, will lead you on a virtual tour of the National Cemetery.
The presentation will be followed by a luncheon buffet during which each guest will be introduced to President Abraham Lincoln, portrayed by Robert Costello. After lunch, guests will be entertained with stories from President Abraham Lincoln including his Gettysburg visit. Adults and children are both encouraged to attend this exciting living history event.
Saturday morning, we encourage you to start with a tour the historic Train Station where President Lincoln arrived in town and the Wills House where he spent the night of Nov. 18, 1863. Both properties are restored and give an interesting preview to the luncheon presentation by John McTague.
Follow up with a self guided tour of the Soldier's National Cemetery after lunch. This cemetery is the site where President Abraham Lincoln delivered the world famous Gettysburg Address. John McTague will tell the stories about how the cemetery and the Gettysburg Address came about in the cozy warmth of the Abigail Adams Room at the Dobbin House Tavern. Armed with this inspiring story, guests can bundle up and brave the February weather to see where this historic event happened and explore the historic cemetery.
Add this entertaining and informative event to your weekend stay. Overnight inn guests at Battlefield Bed & Breakfast will also enjoy an additional presentation by Retired Judge Gerald Eak about President and Mrs Lincoln on Sunday at 8am before breakfast.
