Abraham Lincoln: the Life of an American President presented by Hamish Lutirs, Associate Professor of History at Housatonic Community College. Thursday, March 12th at 7pm. Possibly more than any other president, Abraham Lincoln embodied the possibilities inherent in the American dream. Born in a log cabin, he rose through self-education to the highest office in the land. However, he was considered by many to lack the qualifications needed for the intellectual and political demands of his position. This program will explore the life and personality of this powerful but surprisingly enigmatic figure in our history, including his childhood, professional career and political ambitions. Co-sponsored by the Friends of Wheeler Library and the North Stonington Historical Society.
