Discover the look, feel, and smell of the executive mansion from Lincoln’s inauguration in 1861 to his assassination in 1865 with this illustrated lecture by noted author James Conroy. Conroy brings to life the people who knew Lincoln’s White House, from servants to cabinet secretaries. Participants will hear about the constant stream of visitors, from ordinary citizens to visiting dignitaries and diplomats. Conroy paints a picture of how the Lincolns lived and how the administration conducted day-to-day business during four of the most tumultuous years in American history. Relying on fresh research and a character-driven narrative and drawing on untapped primary sources, he takes guests on a behind-the-scenes tour that provides new insight into how Lincoln lived, led the government, conducted war, and ultimately, unified the country to build a better government of, by, and for the people.
