April 14, 2015

The President of the United States of America has proclaimed April 15, 2015, as a Day of Remembrance for President Abraham Lincoln. He has called upon all Americans to honor his life and legacy with appropriate programs, ceremonies and activities. The President has also called upon the Governors of the United States and its Territories and appropriate officials of all units of government, to direct that flags be flown at half-staff on the Day of Remembrance for President Abraham Lincoln. He has also encouraged all Americans to display the flag at half-staff from their homes and businesses on that day.

As such, pursuant to Chapter 3100 of the Texas Government Code and 4 U.S.C. § 7, I direct that the Texas and United States flags be flown at half-staff on Wednesday, April 15, 2015, in honor of the life and public service of President Abraham Lincoln. Individuals, businesses, municipalities, counties and other political subdivisions and entities are encouraged to fly their flags at half-staff for the same length of time as a sign of honor and respect for this admired leader. Flags should return to full-staff the following day.

Respectfully,

GREG ABBOTT
Governor
