MCHS Speaker Series: Abraham Lincoln & Gustave Koerner
Join an MCHS Speaker Series featuring a discussion on Abraham Lincoln June 9. Historian Stacy Lynn will present the program: Loving Lincoln: Stories about Women and Abraham Lincoln. Lynn recently completed a manuscript for Southern Illinois University Press which explores various women in President Lincoln’s personal life including his female legal clients, his political constituency of women, and a few of the women who shaped his legacy. The book, scheduled for publication in January 2025, is part biography, part memoir, and also includes personal stories about Lynn’s relationship with Lincoln through her experience as an editor of Lincoln’s papers for 20 years.
