Third Annual Lincolniana Gala: A VIRTUAL Evening with Harold Holzer

Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation and theAbraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum cordially invite you to join us for our Virtual Lincolniana Gala featuring Lincoln Scholar Harold Holzer in conversation via Zoom with ALPLM Historian Christian McWhirter.

A Special Message from Harold Holzer:
“I am looking forward to "returning" to Springfield via Zoom to support the crucial work of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation. For years, the ALPLF has supported Springfield’s greatest Lincoln institution, making it possible for visitors and scholars alike to learn from, and be inspired, by our greatest president. The difficult times through which all Americans are now living only re-enforce our reliance on the lessons of the past to inspire us into the future. Lincoln faced his own existential crisis, his own era’s threat to the fabric of American life, and made sure that we not only survived as a nation, but extended liberty and opportunity to those long denied equality. As I make my plans to 'visit' Springfield, I am remembering the words Lincoln spoke on February 11, 1861, when he left Springfield: “Trusting in Him who can go with me, and remain with you, and be everywhere for good, let us confidentially hope that all will yet be well.” May Lincoln’s words usher us into a safe and secure future.”

Fundraising proceeds from this event support the campaign to secure a “permanent home” for the Lincolniana collection.
