HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF MICHIGAN OFFERS TOUR OF LINCOLN'S LIFE


 


Lansing, Mich.-The Historical Society of Michigan (HSM) announces its newest
Michiganders on the Road motor coach adventure-the Life of Lincoln Tour. The
4-day, 3-night tour includes stops at Lincoln's New Salem State Historic
Site, the Lincoln Home in Springfield and the Lincoln Tomb in Oak Ridge
Cemetery, along with a special visit to the new Abraham Lincoln Presidential
Library and Museum. The Life of Lincoln Tour takes place Oct. 13-16, 2017,
and departs from the HSM offices in Lansing, Mich., with two pickup stops
within the state in Grand Rapids and St. Joseph. A detailed itinerary is
attached to this e-mail. It can also be downloaded from HSM's website:
<http://hsmichigan.org/programs/michiganders-on-the-road/life-of-lincoln-tou
r/> hsmichigan.org. Reservations can be made by mail, going online, or by
calling (800) 692-1828.

"Life of Lincoln" motor coach tour participants will have the chance to
experience an in-depth look at the life of one of America's greatest
presidents. Tour highlights include an afternoon exploring New Salem, a
reconstruction of the village where Abraham Lincoln spent his early
adulthood; visits to the Abraham Lincoln House, the Illinois State Museum,
and both the current and old Illinois State Capitols; a half day at the
Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum; and a stop at the Lincoln
Tomb State Historic Site.

The tour fee is $625 per person and includes motor coach transportation; all
lodging; all dinners and breakfasts, plus one boxed lunch on the motor
coach; and all admission fees, taxes, and gratuities. Historical Society of
Michigan membership is required; memberships start at $25. Price is based on
double occupancy. The registration deadline is September 1, 2017.

The Michiganders on the Road motor coach tour program was developed by HSM
to allow participants to experience the culture and heritage of all 50
states. The excursions are not "cookie cutter" tours. Each and every tour is
planned, executed and guided by Robert Myers, HSM's assistant director for
education programs and events. When planning the adventures, Myers keeps in
mind what history enthusiasts look for in their road trips so that the
experience meets expectations.

The Historical Society of Michigan is the state's oldest cultural
organization, founded in 1828 by territorial governor Lewis Cass and
explorer Henry Schoolcraft. A nongovernmental nonprofit, the Society focuses
on publications, conferences, education, awards and recognition programming,
and support for local history organizations to preserve and promote
Michigan's rich history.
