Welcome To The
District of Columbia
We are the most active and longest continuously serving Lincoln study organization in the United States of America
The purpose of the Lincoln Group of the District of Columbia is:
to study the life and leadership of Abraham Lincoln
to engage new generations in understanding his dedication to equality and liberty under law and his attitude “with malice toward none, with charity for all;"
to educate about his vision “that government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
"With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."
