President Lincoln's statue at President Lincoln's Cottage.

In D.C.’s Petworth neighborhood, on the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home, sits a cottage steeped in history. While he wasn’t the only president to stay there, it bears Lincoln’s name and it’s estimated he spent about a quarter of his presidency living there. We learn about the story behind the property, its use today and an exhibit on view now about immigration called “American by Belief.”
