Upcoming Program ~ Thursday ~ March 6 ~ 7 pm

with  Howard Coffin

A Vermont Humanities Council event ~ NEW

Thursday,  March  6th  at  7:00 pm 

Beginning with Lincoln's preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, and continuing through to the consecration of the National Soldiers Cemetery at Gettysburg, historian Howard Coffin traces how Lincoln's leadership of the Federal war effort and his political canniness shaped the relationship between the president and Vermont, a state Lincoln admired though never visited. This free event is open to the public, and will be held at the First Congregational Church, located at 77 Main Street, three doors down from the library.  Hope to see you there !
