Event Details

On October 23, 1860, Abraham Lincoln wrote his Indiana friend David Turnham, concluding with “I would much like to visit the old home and old friends of my boyhood, but I fear the chance for doing so soon, is not very good.”  Lincoln never again visited Spencer County, Indiana where he lived from age 7-21. This presentation will use primary source material to examine Lincoln’s 1816-1830 Hoosier neighborhood and the people who he knew during this important phase of his life.

William (Bill) Bartelt is a native of Holland, Indiana.  He taught social studies at Evansville’s Harrison High School for 37 years and was the social studies and fine arts department chair at the school when he retired in 2005.

Reservations are required.
