27th Annual

Lincoln Reenactment

February 10 & 11, 2017

       Members of the 2010 President's Club pose in the Lincoln Carnegie Library before the morning programming and noon Look-A-Like Contest Ceremony. 






The Century-old Lincoln County Courthouse is a perfect location for the morning program and Look-A-Like Contest Ceremony.  This 110 year old native limestone building is one of the most photographed buildings in Kansas.  You may feel as though you truly are there in the 1860's with President Lincoln!

 It is only fitting and proper that we hereby dedicate ourselves to continuing our Lincoln Reenactment beyond the first 25 years for today's young people and those to come.  May we in Lincoln KS always reflect the spirit of Abraham Lincoln!

We  suggest a side trip to Delphos, Ks, during your visit to Lincoln.  Grace Bedell, the little girl who wrote the letter to Lincoln advising him that he had a better chance of winning the election if he grew a beard, homesteaded with her husband, George Billings, near there.   George took the avice from Horace Greeley, also from the state of New York,  not to settle in Colorado as first planned, but in Kansas.  George was among the first settlers on Yockey Creek, Grace following him later.   The Billings maintained their ties to Greeley and also became friends with Wild Bill Hickock, and other hunters who stayed in their modest cabin home.   Later, George became the President of the Delphos State Bank and he and Grace moved into the small town, living their remaining years there.    A monument honoring Grace for her letter stands in the Delphos City Park.
