Now He Belongs To the Ages : Lincoln Tomb Documentary

The Lincoln Monument Association is proud to announce the release of Now He Belongs to the Ages: Lincoln Tomb, the first video examination of the history and symbolism of the Lincoln Tomb State Historic Site.

Now He Belongs to the Ages combines archival photographs, high-definition video and original music with commentary by experts from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, the University of Illinois Springfield and the LMA itself to explore such topics as the controversy over the tomb’s location, its design and construction, the bungled 1876 attempt to steal the president's remains, and more.

Those who buy now also will receive a bonus CD of the music soundtrack.

Now He Belongs to the Ages, co-produced by the LMA and Autumn Leaf Productions, is both an ideal companion piece for people who have visited Lincoln Tomb and an information-packed introduction to the tomb for those who have not.

See ordering information in the LMA Marketplace.


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.
