Lincoln’s Assassination and its Consequences

Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum

Prominent abolitionist Frederick Douglass gave a series of speeches in Illinois in the aftermath of President Lincoln’s assassination that ask timely questions about the direction the Nation will take into the Reconstruction Period. Many of those questions remain relevant decades later in a compelling presentation and discussion with historical reenactor Bob Davis. Noted historical reenactor Bob Davis brings to life the words and ideas of prominent abolitionist Frederick Douglass in the aftermath of Lincoln’s assassination as we celebrate Black History Month. 

This is event is free but reservations are required. Event begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Library.  Doors open at 5:00pm.  E-TICKET MUST BE PRESENTED FOR ENTRY (printed or on digital device). Tickets can be obtained here.
