Dear Friend of the National Parks,
As we commemorate the 149th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s historic Gettysburg Address, please ask Congress to help the National Park Service fully tell his story by protecting the Lincoln Train Station in Gettysburg. President Lincoln arrived at this train station–now beautifully restored–on November 18, 1863, the night before delivering the Gettysburg Address.
The Borough of Gettysburg and Gettysburg Foundation are set to donate the Lincoln Train Station to the National Park Service to help tell the story of Lincoln at Gettysburg and to serve as a downtown national park visitor center. To make this happen, we need Congress to pass legislation adding the train station to the boundary of Gettysburg National Military Park.
Take Action: Send your comments to your senators and representative urging them to protect the legacy of Abraham Lincoln by passing S. 1897 and H.R. 1335, legislation that would permit the donation of the Lincoln Train Station to Gettysburg National Military Park!
Thank you for doing your part to honor President Lincoln by protecting the Lincoln Train Station in downtown Gettysburg. Future generations will appreciate your action.
