The Lincoln Museum in Fort Wayne, Indiana has scheduled some interesting programs for the summer.
On Thursday, July 26, 2007 at 7 pm, Donna McCreary will talk about her new book, Fashionable First Lady, the Victorian Wardrobe of Mary Lincoln and offer a visual presentation. McCreary is also the author of Lincoln’s Table, a cookbook about the Lincolns. There will be a book signing following the presentation.
While you’re there, don’t miss the museum’s fascinating temporary exhibit, “Bleeding Blue and Gray: Civil War Medicine,” which runs through September 23rd. In addition to highlighting some of the medical advances that took place during the Civil War, the exhibit shows how nurses, doctors, citizen volunteers, and other soldiers cared for the sick and wounded.
The Lincoln Museum in Fort Wayne, Indiana is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm, and Sunday 1 to 5 pm. For more information, visit their website or call 260.455.3864.
