The Lincoln Group of DC continues its goal of promoting Abraham Lincoln scholarship by co-sponsoring a special evening at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, DC. On Thursday, February 9, 2023, join the Lincoln Group and Princeton University’s James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions for a discussion with Allen C. Guelzo in association with the newly released 2nd edition of his book, Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President. Dr. Guelzo will be in conversation with Lincoln Group’s own Lucas Morel of Washington and Lee University and Richard Brookhiser of National Review. The event is free of charge.
Lincoln Group members will recall that we co-sponsored a discussion with Allen Guelzo and Michael Burlingame for our February 2022 joint Lincoln Birthday Banquet, held online this year due to COVID. Guelzo returns to Washington, DC just as his book returns in updated and revised form and with a new preface. The original Redeemer President book published in 1999 received numerous accolades, including the prestigious Gilder Lehrman Lincoln Prize. Given the notable participants, this current event will no doubt feature a deep exchange of ideas regarding Lincoln’s views on a variety of subjects and his continued relevance to ongoing American life. All Lincoln Group of DC members are invited to attend.
The February 9, 2023 program begins at 7 pm at Ford’s Theatre. Tickets are free but must be obtained in advance via the Ford’s Theatre site: https://www.fords.org/visit/abraham-lincoln-redeemer-president/.
