Fort Wayne

Fort Wayne is the second largest city in the state of Indiana in the United States of America, after the capital, Indianapolis. It is also the county seat of Allen County. In 2008, it had a population of 251,591, making it the 73rd largest city in the US. We find it in the northeast of the country, about 20 miles west of the Ohio border and 50 miles south of Michigan.

Fort Wayne is also the capital of the metropolitan area of the same name, which includes Allen, Wells and Whitney counties. The city is named after an American Revolutionary War statesman, Anthony Wayne, who was nicknamed “Mad”. He had Fort Wayne built here in 1794.

Fort Wayne’s economy today is based on manufacturing, education, insurance, health care, logistics, and security. The city is home to the African American History Museum, which introduces visitors to the history of slavery in the United States as well as the contemporary African American community. There is also the Greater Fort Wayne Aviation Museum, which is located inside the Lieutenant Paul Baer Terminal at the Fort Wayne International Airport. This introduces visitors to the history of aviation, as well as well-known figures from the field, such as Paul Baer and Art Smith. You can also visit the Fire Museum and the Art Museum in the city.

There are several parks in Fort Wayne, of which the oldest and also the smallest (800 m2) is Old Fort Park, which was founded in 1863. In contrast, the youngest park is Buckner Park, founded in 2004. The largest park is Franke Park, spread over area of 1.3 km2, in which there is a children’s zoo.

Lincoln Boyhood National Monument

Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States of America from 1861 to 1865 and also the first president to come from the ranks of the Republican Party. However, he also went down in the nation’s history as a supporter of slaves, a savior of American democracy, a winner of the Civil War, and a man who was able to hold the United States together. However, he eventually paid for his political courage with his own life. On April 14, 1865, he was shot in the box of Ford’s Theater in Washington by Confederate actor John Wilkes Booth. Lincoln succumbed to his injuries the next day.

About 45 miles from Lincoln City is the place where young Abraham spent his childhood. From 1816 to 1830 he lived with his family first in Indiana and then moved to Illinois. There is a beautiful park here, which is open to visitors all year round. Here you can learn a lot of interesting information about the life of this important person. Lincoln’s mother, Nancy Hanks Lincoln, who abandoned him when he was nine years old, is also buried in these locations.

There are two memorial halls, a museum with a number of exhibits, or those interested can watch a short film about Lincoln’s life in Indiana. You can buy books, postcards and other educational materials as a souvenir. The park is a pleasant and peaceful place that invites rest and reflection.
