The life of President Abraham Lincoln was tragically cut short by an assassin's bullet on April 15, 1865. At the wishes of his loving wife Mary, his remains were returned to his home town of Springfield, Illinois. The Lincoln Monument in Oak Ridge Cemetery was erected to preserve the memory of President Lincoln's selfless dedication to preserving the United States of America.
The Lincoln Monument Association was formed in 2010 as a nationwide non-profit support group for the Lincoln Tomb. We invite all those interested in the legacy of President Lincoln to support our efforts to improve the visitor experience at the Lincoln Monument.
