Tales from the Vault: The Lives of the Lincoln Boys
Abraham Lincoln was, according to a relative, “remarkably fond of children.” His and Mary’s relationship with their children was often joyous but also tragic. Please join ALPLM Lincoln Historian Christian McWhirter for the next Tales from the Vault program as he discusses the lives of the Lincoln children and shares objects from the collection that help tell their story and give us a glimpse of the Lincolns’ family life.
This will be a “hybrid” event with the opportunity to attend in-person or virtually. The program will take place in our library’s multi-purpose room on Thursday, September 2 at 12pm. The event is free; reservations are not required.
To watch virtually via Facebook Live, please go to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum Facebook page. Open the page at the appointed time and scroll to the post highlighting the live event. Once you’re there, simply click on the image and watch the live video stream.
Tales from the Vault is a monthly collaboration between the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, the Illinois State Museum, and the Lincoln Home National Historic Site.
Thursday, September 2, 2021 at NOON in the library’s multipurpose room AND on the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum Facebook page. This is a FREE program.
