Event Details

Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial and Historic Southern Indiana present the 31st Annual Lincoln Colloquium:

No figure in American history is more a part of the public memory than Abraham Lincoln.  He has become, in fact, a part of the collective consciousness of America.  He is universally recognized as one of the most significant persons in our country’s history.  Memorials of all types – from the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC to countless statues in town squares – have been created and erected to honor the memory of this man and his accomplishments.  In fact, he is so deeply ingrained in our national consciousness that his image can be found practically everywhere – in sculptures, paintings, posters, dolls, decorative items and on screen, in film and television productions.  Join the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial and Historic Southern Indiana as they examine the myriad of ways in which Abraham Lincoln is, and has been, remembered.
