First responders and healthcare workers will be allowed to visit the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum free of charge on September 11th. Coinciding with the anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, any first responder just has to present a employee ID, and they will be allowed to visit the museum for free. The offer of free admission is one ina series of events where the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum recognize people and organizations that have contributed to the community.
Director Christina Shutt says while President Lincoln thanked the soldiers for their skill, endurance, and dauntless courage during the civil war, those same words apply to today’s first responders and medical personnel who step up to help others in times of crisis.
There are over 13 million items from all eras of Illinois history at the Abraham Lincoln museum. For more information, visit www.PresidentLincoln.Illinois.gov or follow the ALPLM on social media.
