Living historian to recreate Abe Lincoln’s trip to Gettysburg via Hanover Junction

Civil War fans have another major Gettysburg 150 moment coming on Nov. 19 – the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. Abraham Lincoln stayed in the Wills House, partly seen at left in this five-year-old photo from atop the Gettysburg Hotel. Of course, the president passed through Hanover Junction and Hanover traveling to and from Gettysburg. The excursion train Steam into History will observe part of the president’s journey from New Freedom to Hanover Junction and back with the appearance of living historian James Hayney.
