Bring on the Boomers...
(This presentation is part of our Bring on the Boomers but you don’t need to be born between 1946 and 1964 to join us)
Lincoln at Gettysburg
Day: Tuesday
Date: July 22nd.
Time: 6:30 PM
Cost: Free*
Presenter: Gary Hylander.
The power of words has rarely been given a more compelling demonstration than in Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. In a mere 272 words, Lincoln's remarks completed the work of General Meade's guns. Announcing
a new birth of freedom for all Americans, the Gettysburg Address has become an authoritative expression of the American spirit as authoritative as the Declaration of Independence itself. Because of Lincoln's
words, we live in a different America, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.  This program is offered in partnership with Sage Educational services.  

Lincoln's Assassination, April, 1865
Day: Tuesday
Date: August 19th
Time: 6:30 PM
Cost: Free*
Presenter: Gary Hylander
Pre-Registration Required
Join us as we discuss the events and outcome of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.  John Wilkes Booth and his co-conspirators had devised a plan to save the Confederacy by murdering Lincoln, Vice President Johnson and Secretary of State Seward. Entering noiselessly into the Presidential box, Booth shot Lincoln. He died the following morning. Standing at the President’s bedside, Secretary of War Stanton’s first words remain the truest and the best.  “Now,” he said, “he belongs to the ages.”
