Event Details

The History Book Group will meet at 6:00 p.m. Thurs. Feb. 20th on the 2nd floor of the library to discuss David Herbert Donald’s “Lincoln.” 

Donald depicts Lincoln’s gradual ascent from humble beginnings in rural Kentucky to the ever-expanding political circles in Illinois, and finally to the presidency of a country divided by civil war. He chronicles Lincoln’s tremendous capacity for evolution and growth, thus illustrating what made it possible for a man so inexperienced and so unprepared for the presidency to become a great moral leader.
