The Lincoln Conspiracy: The Secret Plot to Kill America’s 16th President – And Why it Failed
Tues, May 12, 7:30 pm

Before Abraham Lincoln’s 1865 assassination, there was a conspiracy to kill him four years earlier on his way to his first inauguration. The conspirators, part of a secret society that didn’t want an abolitionist in the highest office, planned an elaborate scheme that could have changed history. Brad Meltzer, New York Times Bestselling Author of Heroes for My Son, Heroes for My Daughter, and The Escape Artist, will discuss this dark and fascinating plot.
