Photos and Story by James Hill
Abraham Lincoln is the subject of an upcoming lecture at the Rock Creek Campus. The Washington County Museum will host historian Richard Etulain as part of its Crossroads Lectures Series. Etulain will discuss why the 16th president has remained so beloved and vital to today’s people in “Abraham Lincoln: With Charity for All.” This program will take place at 3:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 16, Washington County Museum.
Etulain suggests that Lincoln’s skills as a political leader are what set him apart, particularly his ability to work in a nonpartisan way despite his own strong party affiliation. By tracing Lincoln’s experiences as a prairie lawyer, state legislator, party leader, and commander in chief, Etulain brings to light his political genius and generosity. Admission: $3 for adults, $2 for seniors and youth ages 6-17. Admission is free for children under 6, members, and PCC faculty, students and staff.
