Lincoln and Native Americans
By Michael S. Green

This book discusses federal policies toward Native Americans before and during the Civil War and how Lincoln’s decisions affected what came after the war.  It weighs Lincoln’s impact on the lives of Native Americans and imagines what might have happened if Lincoln had lived past the war’s end. Author Green delves into Lincoln’s racial views about people of color who were not African American.

First session on December 11, 10 am.  New participants are welcome.           See note below for how to join in.


Join the Study Forum

All members of the Lincoln Group are welcome to participate in this study and discussion group.  The Study Forum meets once a month on a Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon.  Most often, we learn from a recently published book about Lincoln or his era.  Members submit questions to a facilitator who organizes the meeting format for maximum engagement. 


You are welcome to join at any time regardless of your personal knowledge level.  We are all learning together to better appreciate the leadership and legacy of Abraham Lincoln.  We ask that you do the reading and participate in the conversation.  While we have always met in person at the Ford's Theatre Learning Center, we are currently Zoomers, meeting from the comfort of our homes. 

Sign up or ask questions using the contact comment box at the bottom of this page.  You are also welcome to try us out if you are considering membership.
