This month, yours truly will be the featured speaker and, as a means of paying tribute to our 16th President during the month of his birth, he will be the subject of my presentation. I will try to explain Mr. Lincoln’s continuing metamorphosis on the key issue of his time – slavery. In Bottom Rail on Top: Abraham Lincoln’s Evolving Stance on Slavery, I will use his own words to tell the story that led to his becoming known as the Great Emancipator. It wasn’t an easy journey for him, and there were many side roads to be explored and bumps to be navigated along the way.
I hope you will find it both enjoyable and enlightening.
