February 2020 Program: Abraham Lincoln through the Eyes of Political Cartoonists

Back by popular demand —

Don’t miss the Traverse Area Historical Society’s February program, Sunday the 16th, 2pm in the McGuire Room at Traverse Area District Library, 610 Woodmere, Traverse City. Our programs at TADL will be held on the third Sunday of every month, February, March, April, May, September, October, and November at 2:00 pm.

TAHS Board Chair, Stephen Siciliano, will be speaking on “Abraham Lincoln’s Presidency Through the Eyes of the Political Cartoonists of His Day.”  If you think Presidents Trump and Obama have been roughly handled by today’s press, you will be amazed by the treatment of the man who we now see as one of our greatest presidents. Siciliano has a PhD in American History from the College of William Mary, where his area of special study was the Civil War.
