EVENT DETAILS

Few know that our 16th President, the man who saw the Union through the Civil War, did not have the chance to properly attend school. He went “by littles”, increments that amounted to fewer than 12 months of formal education over several years. Noted historian and author Lewis E. Lehrman follows Abraham Lincoln’s incredible life, highlighting key moments that give insight into how he went from the poor son of a frontiersman with little formal education to one of the most celebrated leaders in American history.
