SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum plans to announce a number of events and activities to commemorate the end of the Civil War.

The museum will hold a news conference in Springfield Tuesday to reveal the details of its 150th anniversary plans for the conclusion of the Civil War, the death of Abraham Lincoln, and the end of slavery in 1865. The museum’s 10th anniversary also will be celebrated next year.

The museum says among the plans are new entertainment options and digital services at the museum and a series of family activities and presentations.

The plans will be detailed by Library and Museum Executive Director Eileen Mackevich, historian James Cornelius and Illinois Historic Preservation Director Amy Martin, among others.
