SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 26 | 2 PM
Abraham Lincoln had an unusual and ongoing relationship with New York State: as a visitor, as President-Elect, as President, and later as iconic martyr. In turn, the Empire State forged a unique and important relationship with its wartime leader. Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer examines the 16th President’s dealings with the nation’s most populous and important state, and the role New York played in the social, military, economic, and technological upheavals of the Civil War.
