June Luncheon

Friday, June 8, Union League Club

Michael Burlingame

“Lincoln's Inner World”

There's an award given to historians who excel at illuminating Abraham Lincoln.  Ken Burns, Doris Kearns Goodwin, and James McPherson have each been recognized.  In their company you'll find another Lincoln Prize recipient, who will be in our company in June.  Historian Michael Burlingame will offer some lively insight into Lincoln's inner world, providing a frank look at his marriage, his temper, his relationship with his father, his own permissiveness as a parent, and sources of his melancholy.  Burlingame has many Lincoln volumes to his credit.
