Tales from the Vault: Discovering the Odd, Unusual, Creepy and Bizarre!

November 5, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Tales from the Vault

Join Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum Chief of Acquisitions Ian Hunt for the latest installment in our “Tales from the Vault” series during our next Facebook LIVE! event on Thursday, November 5, 2020 at 7pm CT.

On the heels of Halloween, Ian will share some of the odd, unusual, creepy, and downright bizarre items in our collections that help historians tell the full stories of both the Lincoln legacy and Illinois’ fascinating history.

  • Bloodstained mementos preserving the history of the tragic night of President Lincoln’s assassination.
  • The macabre convergence of spirituality and photography in the 1800s.
  • An Illinois crime spree by a teenager who would later become one of the most notorious crime figures of the 20th century.

To watch this Facebook LIVE! event, please go to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum Facebook page. Then open the page at the appointed time and scroll to the post highlighting the live event. Once you’re there, simply click on the image and watch the live video stream.
