The patriotic pilgrimage thought to be impossible…that gives us all Hope!

About the Trip

What started out as a patriotic pilgrimage for "Love of Country" turned into a lifelong mission to inspire others and to honor our veterans by helping America recommit to Lincoln's core values and those of our nation: God, Unity, Liberty, and Patriotism.

It was a historic and record-breaking trip that was at times both harrowing and humbling! But more importantly, the 50 Capitols trip revealed the inherent goodness and kindness of Americans coast to coast and gives us all hope.

In Honor of Lincoln

50 Capitols in 4 Minutes

 

Abraham Lincoln was asked to say a "few appropriate remarks" and in just 272 words, he ended up inspiring a nation while memorializing the soldiers. Here is a one-of-a-kind video to memorialize Lincoln and probably the only time in history that the Gettysburg Address was ever recited at all 50 State Capitols! (4 min.)
