Wednesday, November 4, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.
The story of the American Civil War is not complete without examining the extraordinary and influential lives of the wives of Abraham Lincoln’s top generals. They were their husbands’ closest confidantes and had a profound impact on the generals’ ambitions and actions. Most important, the women’s own attitudes toward, and relationships with, Lincoln had major historical significance.
