NOTE: Because of high demand, this presentation is going to be repeated on Thursday May 16 1:30-3:00 at SLCHA: Silas Wright House in Canton. Those people who were closed out of the May 9 date have automatically been enrolled in this new section. (If you wish/need to drop this course, please inform the SOAR office so that someone else may attend.)
In this presentation, we focus on the parallel lives of these two men during the Civil War. Unknowingly, Lincoln and Whitman often crossed paths with each other. Learn how each inspired the other during those turbulent years.
