Lincoln's Legacy

Children enjoy freedom, equality, and opportunity because of Lincoln's Legacy


To honor the 150th anniversary of the signing of Emancipation Proclamation and the visionary behind the decree, Lincoln Financial Group is proud to present Lincoln's Legacy, a three-year initiative that brings to our communities opportunities to share a story, learn about, and celebrate President Abraham Lincoln's landmark issuance of this very important document that changed America for the better.

This act, which served as the precursor to the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution effectively outlawing slavery in our country, paved the way for freedom, opportunity and equality — values that form the cornerstone of the American experience.


"In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free — honorable alike in what we give, and what we preserve."

– Abraham Lincoln
