Life of Abraham Lincoln to be examined

DeKALB – History teacher and Civil War era expert Dennis Maher will present "Family, Friends and Social Relationships of Abraham Lincoln" at noon Saturday at the DeKalb Public Library.

History is shaped by individuals who have changed the course of history through small or large acts. These people themselves – like everybody – are influenced by individuals we have chosen to live with, work with and socialize with. Lincoln was no different. He had family, friends and business associates. The program will follow his life from his birth in Kentucky to his early rise in politics in Illinois, highlighting his personal experience that later shaped him as a man and politician.

This program is free. Registration is not required, and everyone is welcome.
