With Malice Toward None: Abraham Lincoln in Words and Pictures

With Malice Toward None: Abraham Lincoln in Words and Pictures

In honor of Abraham Lincoln's birthday, Daniel Pritchett returns to the library to give an illustrated lecture taking us through Lincoln’s early life and character, including his remarkable physical strength, love of books (despite his lack of formal education), aversions to hunting, gambling, and drinking alcohol (against the status quo of the day), sense of compassion toward native Americans, and his almost visceral disgust about slavery, even though he grew up and lived in a very racist society and culture. The presentation also gives examples of some of Lincoln’s most magnetic words and how he used his eloquent speaking manner to transform our country forever.

Registration is required. Sign up online, call the library at 302-645-2733 or stop by the Circulation Desk.

This program has been made possible by a grant from the Delaware Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
