President Abraham Lincoln took office during a time of great division in  the United States. Join us on Presidents Day to discover how he brought the nation back together. Families can ask questions to historical interpreter Dennis Boggs about Lincoln's most difficult decisions. Then, learn methods for having productive conversations about challenging topics. Use our discussion starters to practice with friends and family after the program.
