3RD Annual Lincolniana Gala goes virtual featuring Harold Holzer

Date: October 13, 2020
Location: Zoom

The evening included a virtual Happy Hour with Harold Holzer, author and scholar of Abraham Lincoln and the political culture of the American Civil War Era, followed by a discussion via Zoom with Holzer and Historian Christian McWhirter on Holzer’s latest book, The Presidents vs. the Press: The Endless Battle Between the White House and the Media- from the Founding Fathers to Fake News.

A Special Message from Harold Holzer:
“While this is not the manner in which I had hoped to ‘meet’ all of you, I look forward to joining you virtually in support of the crucial work of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation.  For years, the ALPLF has supported Springfield’s greatest Lincoln institution, making it possible for visitors and scholars alike to learn from, and be inspired by, our greatest president Abraham Lincoln.”
