Crowds Gather for Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address


ALPENA, MI – Crowds gathered at Culligan Plaza and on the other three corners of Chisholm and 2nd Avenue in downtown Alpena waiting for the arrival of President Abraham Lincoln to deliver the Gettysburg Address. Lincoln is welcomed to Alpena this afternoon via a special parade, that should resemble the setting in Gettysburg 150 years ago.

Cast members from the Thunder Bay Theater wore clothing from the Civil War era. They followed Lincoln who was riding on horse back into the downtown Alpena.

Traffic was rerouted off of Chisholm and 2nd Avenue by the local police department.
