Gettysburg Address Travel

Posted by Yorkshire on 2013/11/20


Yesterday was the 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. For Lincoln to get to Gettysburg from Washington to Gettysburg, he had to travel to Baltimore and switch to yjr Northern Central RR which headed north to York, PA. But before reaching York, Lincoln had to transfer to a Railroad to Hanover, PA and then to Gettysburg.

But his transfer before York was done at a little switching station called Hanover Junction. It was there, Brady took a picture supposedly with Lincoln in the picture.

The building at Hanover Junction in 1863 still stands, and has been refurbished and brought to what it looked like in 1863. Last week, the Group “Steam into History” http://steamintohistory.com/ re-created this scene.
