Historical Memory and the

Religious Views of Abraham Lincoln

Following the assassination, religion proved to be one the most contentious battlegrounds in the war over Abraham Lincoln’s memory.  Dr. Samuel P. Wheeler, Sangamon County Historical Society Executive Coordinator and a researcher with the Papers of Abraham Lincoln, will reconstruct the evolution of Lincoln’s religious views from his childhood, through his time in Sangamon County, and into the White House.
