Lincoln Speaks

When: Sun., Jan. 16 2011

Pull up a chair with Honest Abe today from 2 to 3 p.m., as the Shaker Historical Society presents "A Campfire Chat with President Lincoln." Joining our 16th prez in a lively discussion of Civil War concerns will be a genuine fake Union soldier. Afterward, reenactors will discuss the details of a soldier's life, including everything from his weaponry to his relationship with his wife. The program is part of the Historical Society's ongoing exhibit, The Civil War and the Shakers: The First Conscientious Objectors, which continues through February 27. Showcasing a collection of Civil War flags, military gear, and letters, the exhibit commemorates the 150th anniversary of the war's start and its impact on Ohio. It all goes down from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Shaker Historical Society Museum at 16740 South Park Blvd. in Shaker Heights. Cost is $2 for adults and $1 for children ages 6 to 18.
