ottbern 3Jlltn(Ji - Salt Creek Civil War Round Table
Dear Program Director:
Want to put on a good program about the Civil War at your school, library, historical society or
museum?
With the sesquicentennial of the Civil War coming up in 2011, The Coalition of Civil War
Round Tables of Northern Illinois want to spur interest in the Civil War. So we've put together
a "speaker's bureau" of local published authors and experts, who've presented programs
throughout the Midwest. And in this era of tight budgets, most of these programs come free!
The attached file details the presenters, their programs, and contact information. Please
contact each individual regarding their program and please check this file regularly for
~ottbern 3Jlltn(Ji~
updates.

Talks/topics: My principai topic wouid be to discuss my book,
Fighting Slavery in Chicago - Abolitionists, the Law of Slavery, and
Lincoln. Based on eight years of research, FSIC was published In
February of 2006. It traces the activities of some Intrepid Chicagoans
who ran the underground railroad, established abolitionist
newspapers, organized political parties, and helped get Lincoln
elected President. It examines Lincoln's position on slavery and the
steps he took to abolish it and his vision for America.

yarns. The couple delights the audience with stories about the people
and events that influenced their lives. Through engaging conversation
they speak about their youth, education, the struggles of the Civil War,
and their personal lives in Springfield and WaShington D.C. By the
end of the program, the audience will know more about the personal
Mr. Lincoln, as well as, the professional politician and the issues that
troubled the nation in his time. The audience will have an opportunity
to ask questions, and meet & greet for pictures. This program is
