Our Research Director, Dr. Ginette Aley, will be presenting at the University of Saint Mary’s 21st Annual Lincoln Event. Dr. Aley, a Civil War and Midwestern home front historian, will deliver a talk titled “The Challenges on the Home Front: Union and Confederate Women and Families”, exploring how northern and southern communities responded to the conflict and the societal impacts on everyday life and identities.
The lecture will be held Monday, February 18th, 2019 at 7 p.m. and is open to the public in Saint Mary’s Xavier Theater at 4100 S. Fourth Street Leavenworth, Kansas. Admission is free and no rsvp is required. A reception will follow the presentation.
The Lincoln Event originated in 1999 as a way to showcase USM’s Hall Lincoln Collection. Attendees to the event can see the collection which includes an original signed copy of the 13th Amendment.
We encourage any readers near Leavenworth to attend this event!
