GVSU Lincoln collection provides deep insight into the life and times of Abraham Lincoln
David Moore December 26, 2012 | WGVU
An historical adaptation of
the life of the sixteenth President of the United States has been a box office
Starring Daniel Day-Louis and Sally
Field, the movie provides a fascinating glimpse into the character of Abraham Lincoln.
But while the movie is engrossing, an
extensive collection of Lincoln memorabilia here in West Michigan gives us a
deeper insight into the man and the time in which he lived.
on WGVU Midday West Michigan, David Moore talks with Grand Valley State University
Archivist Robert Beasecker about the Lincoln connection.
