Join us for Hingham’s annual Lincoln Day, which celebrates our Revolutionary War hero, General Benjamin Lincoln, and President Abraham Lincoln, whose ancestors hailed from Hingham.  At 10:15 on Saturday, February 17, the Hingham Militia will muster behind Old Ship Church and march to Benjamin Lincoln’s grave in Hingham Cemetery.  Inside Old Ship church, the ceremony begins at 11:00 a.m..  This year’s keynote speaker is James R. Conroy, Hingham resident and noted Civil War author.

The ceremony is followed by a march to Fountain Square, where a wreath is laid at the foot of Abraham Lincoln’s statue.  Participants will then retire to Old Derby Academy for light refreshments hosted by the Historical Society.
