Saturday, February 17th, 2:00 pm: Visitor Center Auditorium

From the Circuit to the Presidency

Join us in the Visitor Center Auditorium at 2:00 pm for Guy Fraker's presentation on the 8th Judicial Circuit. Fraker, an author and lawyer, will present his research on Lincoln's time as a lawyer on the circuit, and how Lincoln built a network critical to his receiving the Republican nomination for president. This event is free and the Goosenest Prairie Gift Shop will have copies of Mr. Fraker's books for purchase for the author to sign.
