Tales from the Vault–Love and Romance
Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum
Join ALPLM manuscripts curator Christopher Schnell to explore and discuss changing attitudes about love, romance, dating, and relationships using textual material from the 19th and 20th centuries. The audience will be invited to view up close rare items from library collections such as saucy poetry and love letters from the 1850s, diary entries of lonely Civil War-era singles, machine-made Victorian Valentine’s Day cards, and vinegar Valentine’s from the roaring ‘20s from the Library’s collections.
Reservations are not required.
