Inscription.  Nearby here was Sthreshley Farm, site of Abraham Lincoln's Grand Review. On April 8, 1863, 60,000 men passed the president who sat on a horse for the long, 5½ hour review. 10 year old Tad stayed by his father, while Mrs. Lincoln watched from a carriage. Lincoln constantly touched his tall hat in a return salute to the officer, but uncovered his head when enlisted men passed by.
