Abraham Lincoln in the Archives: “New” Sources, New Questions Michelle Krowl

February 17

On Saturday, February 17th at 1:30 pm at 1195 Baltimore Pike, Gettysburg, PA. In 1936, historian James G. Randall posed the question, “Has the Lincoln theme been exhausted?” Scholarship over the subsequent fourscore and seven years have answered the question with a resounding “no,” and interest in Abraham Lincoln continues to be robust. Michelle A. Krowl, curator of the Abraham Lincoln Papers at the Library of Congress, will discuss how newly available primary source materials and the proliferation of digital tools now allow different questions to be asked, and answered about the life and legacy of Abraham Lincoln, and the world in which he lived.
