[ARCHIVED] 'Meet' President Lincoln at the Library this Thursday

A Civil War-era cannon

November 12 2018 – This fall, leave the textbooks behind and experience history as the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library presents our fall lecture series “Meet the Presidents.” Through a mixture of first-person portrayals and lectures, we will be exploring the lives and legacies of four of our most notable presidents. Learn how each faced the leadership challenges of their time in what is arguably the hardest job in the world.

On Thursday, November 15, Fred Priebe, a Lincoln impersonator from Belleville, will provide a historically accurate and entertaining first-person presentation highlighting President Abraham Lincoln’s evolving beliefs and leadership qualities in “The Road to the Civil War.”

Mr. Priebe has been role-playing as President Lincoln since 1996 and started at Greenfield Village in Dearborn.

This presentation begins at 7 p.m. in the Library Auditorium. For more information on the “Meet the Presidents” lecture series, please contact the Reference Desk at 989-837-3449 or visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/library. Events like this one may be found in the Adult Services monthly calendar available at the Library.

The Grace A. Dow Memorial Library is located at 1710 W. St. Andrews Rd. The Library is a service of the City of Midland.
