Little Known Facts about the Lincoln’s and the Civil War

Guest Lecturer: Rick Brown

Little Known Facts about the Lincoln’s and the Civil War Guest Lecturer: Rick Brown Date: Thursday April 18, 2013 Time: 6:00-8:00pm Location: Sloan Museum Fee: $9 adults, $8 seniors, $6 youth age 3-11, Free for APHC Upon purchasing a copy of the April 28, 1865 edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer Rick Brown discovered an article about the capture and death of John Wilkes Booth. The reason he purchased it? It was 100-years-old at the time. Little did he know that this small incident in his life would turn out to become his life-long avocation. He has spent the last 47-years collecting Lincoln assassination relics and researching the assassination and its aftermath. Also on display that evening will be his Traveling Lincoln Assassination Museum. It is 24-running feet in length and contains over 50 original relics including newspapers, broadsides, engravings, and a mourning ribbon worn at Lincoln's funeral in Philadelphia. In addition, the diary of a resident of Washington, D.C written during the time of the assassination will be on display, as will sheet music, stereo views, CDVs and other photos, booklets, and letters. All relics were produced between April and July 1865. Space is limited. Reservations Recommended. Reserve your seat at 810.237.3409
