Stafford, Virginia

On April 10, 1863, President Lincoln was here at the Stafford Courthouse headquarters of General O.O. Howard. Taking off his hat to get in Howard's tent, he noticed scripture written on tablets. The men discussed Psalm 23:1 "The Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not want." Later, Linclon selected Howard to be commissioner of the "Freedmen's Bureau" for freed slaves. In 1867, the general founded Howard University in D.C.
