We will be exploring One of Lincoln's Most Important Speeches Right Before Our Election.
This class will be a unique learning History experience for many but especially for our younger people. Pat Maloney's knowledge of History and his dedication and love to the Republic result in a much-felt, passionate presentation that is sure to be kept in your memory for quite a while!
Is this time in history really the most threatening to our Republic or have we survived similar conditions? This class will provide an in-depth look into our past, how it is similar to our present, and how Abraham Lincoln advised Americans to overcome these dangers.
Join us as our Empower U Board Historian, Patrick Maloney, explores a speech given by Abraham Lincoln in 1834 at the Young Men's Lyceum Museum of Springfield, Illinois. He will explore the context and meaning of this most magnificent, but largely forgotten address (which many consider one of Lincoln's most important speeches). What can it reveal about the current state of American politics and how to proceed?
Can we once again unite as a people to prevent what many see as an inevitable fracture in or Republic? This class may give you hope to draw on from the past.
