This year, on Saturday, April 29, Westfield-based nonprofit The Lincoln Special, in cooperation with Springfield’s Abraham Lincoln Presidential Foundation, will host three free commemoration events open to the public.

The daylong commemoration begins at 11 a.m. at the Indiana Statehouse, where world renowned Lincoln presenter Fritz Klein will portray the 16th president as part of an “AMA” (Ask Me Anything) event. From the Statehouse, the event continues at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument for an honorary wreath laying ceremony at 12 p.m, and concludes in Cambridge City, Indiana later that afternoon.


The Need


The legacy of Abraham Lincoln needs to be heard now more than ever given today’s toxic social climate. Film and Television is the most powerful medium in the history of all civilization for communicating thoughts, ideas, and stories. By taking our motion picture directly to underserved regions in the United States, we usher in a renewed sense of optimism and hope for generations to come.
