The Wit and Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln

April 27, 2019 at 2:00 PM | South Plainfield, NJ | South Plainfield Free Public Library
Discover the personal side of Abraham Lincoln. The program covers the great man’s formative years, his courtship and marriage, the beginnings and development of his abolitionist view point, and his first – though not very successful – trip to Congress. Discussion points also include the causes of the Civil War, major events and turning points within the war, the Emancipation Proclamation, and the Gettysburg Address.
