LINCOLNS LEGACY INITIATIVE
When Lincoln Financial adopted President Abraham Lincoln's name in 1905, we also adopted his ideals. Today, we reflect those values in Lincoln's Legacy: a three-year initiative consisting of a series of events and experiences that strives to inspire the nation through the words and deeds of Abraham Lincoln. It's designed to underscore the impact of his legacy today, and the promise it represents for tomorrow.
Launched in 2013 to mark the 150th anniversary of the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln's Legacy culminates in 2015 with the 150th anniversary of the adoption of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.
Lincoln's Legacy, at its core, encourages children, adults, families and communities to gather and share stories of their histories. In doing so, we hope to provide a forum for generations to inspire one another and for children to envision the legacies they hope to leave. There are three primary focal points.
