This Month's Topic What: Abraham Lincoln's Boyhood Years
Who: Alan Teller
When: Monday
February 8, 2016, at 7:30 p.m.
Where: Indiana Historical Society Auditorium (Directions)
Our speaker will talk about Abraham Lincoln's life as a child in Indiana. Through a series of questions, he will bring his perspective as a student and interpreter of Lincoln's history. The program will incorporate some audience participation along the way.

Alan Teller has lived in Kokomo for the past 39 years, but still calls Connersville, IN home. Belonging to many genealogy and lineage societies, he has served in many different offices on local, state, and national levels. Mr. Teller is a self-described "Civil War nut," and has spoken all over Indiana about Abraham Lincoln's life in Indiana for years.
