One-hundred fifty years ago, Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, was assassinated.
It wouldn’t be until December 2017 that the flower laid on his funeral bier in Washington D.C in April 1865 would be discovered in of all places — Lockport.
A presentation of Lockport’s capital improvement program for 2018 to 2027, resulted in a lengthy discussion between City Council members regarding project funding options at the council’s Jan. 17 committee of the whole meeting.
