about Lincoln

Lincoln is the capital city of the State of Nebraska, in the United States of America. As of the 2000 census, it has a population of 225,581 and is the second largest city in the state. It is the county seat of Lancaster County, and is one of the few major cities of Nebraska not located along the Platte River. Its nickname is "Star City" (from the use of a star to mark state capitals on road maps) and it has adopted a logo consisting of a star made up of the letter L repeated 5 times.

Lincoln is the home of the flagship campus of the four-campus University of Nebraska and is the location of the Nebraska State Fair. It boasts the headquarters of Nebraska Educational Television (affiliated with the Public Broadcasting System), and Nebraska Public Radio (affiliated with National Public Radio and Public Radio International). These public broadcasting networks that reach throughout the State, except to Omaha, which has its own local public stations.

Lincoln is also the home of Union College and of Nebraska Wesleyan University.

The current mayor of Lincoln is Coleen Seng.

Lincoln history

Lincoln started out as the village of Lancaster, which was founded in 1856, and became the county seat of the newly created Lancaster County in 1859. The territorial capital of Nebraska had been Omaha since the creation of the territory in 1854, but the bulk of the population wanted to move the capital to a more central location. Since most of the population was south of the Platte River, the legislature voted to move the capital south of the river and as far west as possible. The village of Lancaster was chosen.

However, an Omaha senator attempted to derail the move by having Lancaster renamed after the recently assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. At the time, most of the people south of the river had been supporters of the Confederate South and the senator assumed they would not pass the measure if they had to name the capital after the leader of the Union. The ploy did not work. Lancaster was renamed Lincoln and became the state capital at the same time that Nebraska became a state, on March 1, 1867.
