Mr. Lincoln and his Congress
Monday, December 9 | 7-9 p.m.
Tuition: $ 30; GAA members pay $25
Throughout American history there have been many instances when the executive and legislative branches have waged “war.” Mr. Lincoln and the 37th-39th Congress “battled” under unique circumstances—their country in the midst of civil war. In this session, we’ll investigate the oft-stormy relationship between the 16th President and his Congress.
Lecturer: Fred W. Kiger ’74 (’77 MAT) leads our Civil War battlefield study programs and teaches several GAA courses each semester. He is the creator of the field guide The Civil War: A History of the War Between the States (Workman) and has two degrees from UNC, a bachelor’s in history and a master of arts in teaching with an emphasis in history.
