February 14: Lincoln: The Ohio Connection
Ohio played a pivotal role in the political career of Abraham Lincoln. The state helped him win the 1860 Republican presidential nomination, and as president-elect he spoke at the Statehouse on his way to his first inauguration. Four years later his body lay in state in the Rotunda as thousands of Ohioans paid their respects. But the relationship was more complicated than you might think: Lincoln failed to carry Columbus in both the 1860 and 1864 presidential elections. Historian Phil Stichter will share insights into the many links between Abraham Lincoln and the Buckeye State.
