President Lincoln’s Cottage – During the Civil War, for three summers in a row the Lincolns moved their family from the White House to a cottage on a hilltop overlooking the city. This is actually where his nation changing decisions about the Union, Freedom, the Presidency and most notably the Emancipation Proclamation were made.
