clientuploads/calendar_photos/AbLincoln.jpgOne of the bizarre events in American history took place in July of 1876 with the attempt by counterfeiters to steal the body of the Sixteenth President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. This true story occurred eleven years after the death of who some consider to be our greatest U.S. President.

Come hear this little known, surprisingly humorous American tale of desperation by bumbling criminals. Our featured speaker, Gastonia native, Dr. Kevin L. Burke, Professor and Dean at Queens University of Charlotte, has served as a volunteer at the Abraham Lincoln Tomb and Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois.
