Info

A series of author appearances wraps up Aug. 22 with John Stauffer, co-author of “Battle Hymn of the Republic: A Biography of the Song That Marches On.” The book traces the song from revival meetings to battle fields to protest marches. Civil rights historian David Blight says, “Through the story of a song, surprised readers will learn a great deal about what binds as well as divides Americans."

Stauffer, a professor of literature and African-American studies at Harvard, has also written books on radical abolitionists and the parallel lives of Lincoln and Frederick Douglass.

The events begin with a book-signing at 6 p.m., followed by the speech at 6:30. Tickets are free but must be reserved in advance. Visit www.presidentlincoln.illinois.gov and click on “special event tickets and reservations.”
