Abraham Lincoln and Gustave Koerner at the Crossroads of History

Madison County Historical Society

On Sunday, April 14, the Madison County Historical Society Speaker Series topic will be “Abraham Lincoln and Gustave Koerner at the Crossroads of History.” 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.
