Historians To Recreate Lincoln's Flatboat Journey

Last updated on Monday, November 26, 2007

(ROCKPORT) - History experts plan to recreate Abraham Lincoln’s 1828 flatboat journey from Southern Indiana to New Orleans.

The flatboat to be used in the journey is scheduled to arrive in Rockport, Indiana, this week for refitting.

Unlike Lincoln's boat, this one will have twin outboard motors.
