The Idaho State Archives will be hosting a special birthday celebration for Abraham Lincoln, who signed the bill creating the territory of Idaho. Join us for a special guided tour with Former Attorney General and Idaho Lincoln Historian David H. Leroy shortly after 3 pm. In addition, the Archives will be holding extended hours until 5 pm so that anyone who wants to explore the A. Lincoln: His Legacy in Idaho Exhibition will be able to do so. The exhibit features hundreds of Lincoln and Lincoln era artifacts, and gives visitors a glimpse into the life of our 16th President. This event is free for the public, and like any good birthday celebration cake will be served.
