Autographed copies of his latest book will be available thru ticket sales only.
A Special Message from Harold Holzer:
“I am looking forward to "returning" to Springfield via Zoom to support the crucial work of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation. For years, the ALPLF has supported Springfield’s greatest Lincoln institution, making it possible for visitors and scholars alike to learn from, and be inspired, by our greatest president. The difficult times through which all Americans are now living only re-enforce our reliance on the lessons of the past to inspire us into the future. Lincoln faced his own existential crisis, his own era’s threat to the fabric of American life, and made sure that we not only survived as a nation, but extended liberty and opportunity to those long denied equality. As I make my plans to visit Springfield, I am remembering the words Lincoln spoke on February 11, 1861, when he left Springfield: “Trusting in Him who can go with me, and remain with you, and be everywhere for good, let us confidentially hope that all will yet be well.” May Lincoln’s words usher us into a safe and secure future.”

Author Talk with Elizabeth R. Varon
Wednesday, Aug 19th at 7pm CST
Join Christian McWhirter, ALPLM Lincoln Historian, as he interviews Elizabeth Regine Varon, author of Armies of Deliverance.
Elizabeth R. Varon is a Professor of American History at the University of Virginia and received her Ph.D. from Yale. She also is a specialist in the Civil War era and 19th-century South. In addition, she has written five books and her most recent book, "Armies of Deliverance: A New History of the Civil War" was named one of the Wall Street Journal's Ten Best Nonfiction Books of 2019.
Loyal Americans marched off to war in 1861 not to conquer the South but to liberate it. So argues Elizabeth R. Varon in Armies of Deliverance, a sweeping narrative of the Civil War and a bold new interpretation of Union and Confederate war. Armies of Deliverance offers innovative insights on the conflict for those steeped in Civil War history and novices alike.
