Lincoln Ride Recreated

This article originally appeared in the Jamestown Post-Journal

WASHINGTON, D.C. - County resident Jack Peacock toured Washington, D.C. by horseback Sunday, taking the route Abraham Lincoln traveled while in office.

The event was organized by the hosts of "Best of America by Horseback," a satellite and cable television show which airs on the RFD-TV network.

Peacock is an Irving business owner, having owned and operated Stagecoach West for 31 years. A longtime friend of the hosts of the show, Tom and Pat Seay, Peacock was able to be one of the few people to participate in the ride.

Starting out at Lincoln's summer home, the group followed the same route to the White House which Lincoln took daily while president.

"It was just incredible," Peacock said Monday. "It was a very special day and was certainly one of the highlights of my life."
