Three Lincoln Links

Tomorrow I am taking my Lincoln class to Richmond to visit the American Civil War Museum at Tredegar.  Following the visit we will walk over to the Lincoln-Tad monument and talk a bit about how Lincoln has been remembered, commemorated, and vilified since his death in April 1865.  Afterwords we will drive over to Hollywood Cemetery for a quick walk around Confederate Avenue followed by lunch.  In preparation for our visit my students will read three articles on the Lincoln statue:

New York Times article from April 6, 2003

Statement from Charles Bryan Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of the Virginia Historical Society

Southern Poverty Law Center article, "Lincoln Reconstructed"
