ALA Lincoln Birthday Events
The Abraham Lincoln Association‘s annual event celebrating Abraham Lincoln’s birthday has come to a close. The Benjamin P. Thomas Symposium featured Carl Guarneri, Manisha Sinha, and Jason Emerson. I was honored to join my colleague Bill Bartelt for the Dr. Thomas F. Schwartz Luncheon and Lecture where we presented on our book, Abe’s Youth: Shaping the Future President. Following lunch we participated in a roundtable discussion with all five speakers moderated by Prof. Michael Burlingame. The evening’s banquet featured Ray LaHood. Here are some images from the affair.
