President Lincoln’s Visit to Western New York

 

Abraham Lincoln“The Best of The Bargain: Lincoln in Western New York ” written by Lancaster resident John Fagant relives an inaugural journey by President-elect Abraham Lincoln in 1861 that took him through Western New York for a two night visit. At Buffalo’s Exchange Street Station thousands nearly 10,000 strong attempted to get a better view of Lincoln.

The book describes Lincoln’s stay in the region, including a meeting with a lady who gave up her room at a hotel for him; and in quite possibly the most famous Lincoln story of all, a little girl who wrote him a letter suggesting he grow a beard.

“The Best of the Bargain” will take you back to a long neglected story of Western New York.
