Join an MCHS Speaker Series featuring a discussion on Abraham Lincoln & Gustave Koerner on April 14. Gustave Koerner may be one of Southwestern Illinois’ least known, yet most influential Illinoisians from his era. A German immigrant who made Belleville his home, he was a close confident of Abraham Lincoln. Presenting this fascinating story will be Jack LeChien and Mollie McKenzie, co-chairs of the Gustave Koerner House Restoration in Belleville.
