Special Lectures and Performances

The Minnesota History Center offers special lectures and performances throughout the year that are not part of our regular series.

Wed., 8/19/15, 7 p.m.: 
Lincoln Lecture with Historian Harold Holzer
$15 ($11 MNHS members). Tickets available online and by phone at 651-259-3015.
Join Harold Holzer, leading American authority on Abraham Lincoln, for this exclusive lecture about Lincoln's masterful and sometimes controversial use of the media. Holzer will focus on 1864, a time when an election loomed in the shadow of the Civil War and the nation was dealing with the aftermath of the Emancipation Proclamation.
