    Some students from Hodgenville Elementary School took a vicarious trip back to the time of the 16th President earlier this month, thanks to a “Walk through Lincoln’s Life” event at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park.

    “The park first did this in 2006,” said park guide Gary Ferguson. “It’s a two-day educational curriculum-based event for area schools.”
