“Original and unique” were the words used by authorities at both the National Park Service and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum when they accepted copies of the map for display at their Lincoln sites. The reviewing ranger for the NPS at Ford’s Theatre wrote that this “is what I had long been looking for” to improve the interpretation of the Lincoln experience in Washington. “More useful information than I had expected to find in one source,” said an official at the Lincoln Library. The map is also on display at the Library of Congress, Maps Division.
If you would like to have the overview of the Lincoln in Washington research, you can send for a beautifully illustrated map of Lincoln sites and summary stories.
On side one, the map describes Lincoln’s connections with the homes on historic Lafayette Square, just north of the White House.
Side two uses the downtown detail of the 1859 Albert Boschke Map to show over 60 locations that the research has substantiated with at least one Lincoln visit.
The map is full color and unfolds to a size of two feet by three feet. The retail price is $5.95, shipping included. Maryland residents add $0.36 (6%) sales tax. All prices are in US currency. Allow 2 weeks for delivery.
