Letters To Lincoln Presentation


BLOOMINGTON- Dr. Douglas Wilson, an author and co-director of Lincoln studies at Knox college will present letters from long time law partner of the president, William Herndon.

Saturday, March 12 at 1:00 p.m. a recollection of  letters shared between law partners and friends, President Abe Lincoln and William Herndon will be discussed and shared at the McLean County Museum of History.
