Through the Eyes of a Child: Remembering Abraham Lincoln

History Program about Abraham Lincoln


March 12, 2022
2:00pm - 3:00pm


After President Lincoln’s death, many adults who knew him well were interviewed or wrote about him. Almost lost were children’s memories of meeting Lincoln, retold only as family stories or sometimes recorded by a hometown newspaper. Guest speaker and Lincoln historian Kim Bauer has compiled these memories, often ignored by other scholars, into a presentation that shows a largely unknown side of Lincoln’s life. This program is co-sponsored by the Friends of Lincoln Trail Homestead State Park.

Registration not required.
