LINCOLN CITY – Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial will host a special program Saturday about the recent Journey of Remembrance flatboat trip that took place as part of Spencer County's observance of the Lincoln Bicentennial.
The journey, which set sail Sept. 9, retraced Lincoln's 1828 flatboat trip from Rockport to New Orleans, La., when the then 19-year-old future president transported a load of produce for a local merchant.
It was on this trip where Lincoln witnessed a slave auction while in New Orleans, an event that cemented his anti-slavery views.
