Lincoln's Greatest Journey

In the last three weeks of his life, Abraham Lincoln spent 18 days of them away from the capital: two in transit, and 16 based at City Point, Virginia (modern Hopewell). In telling this story, Mr. Trudeau found himself engaged in more detective work than historical research, and what he found changes this story forever. The talk will touch on some unexpected things he found and highlight some critical events during Lincoln's visit.
