Lecture: The President is Dead!

August 22, 2015 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

President Abraham Lincoln

A photographic study of the Lincoln assassination.

Photography had emerged as a new way to record historic people and events during the Civil War. With the tragedy of Pres. Lincoln’s assassination in April of 1865, it was used to identify not only the crime scene and the suspects, but to document their incarceration and subsequent executions. Join historian Carson Hudson as he tells the story of the assassination through the examination and analysis of period photographs. Please note, some of the images may be disturbing to some visitors. 

This event will be held in the Monitor Classroom A.
