SDGAP Guest speaker for January
The scheduled seminar is “Lincoln and Spiritualism”.
In 1862, in the midst of a bloody civil war, President Abraham Lincoln and his wife Mary suffered unspeakable heartache when their young son died. To combat her grief, First Lady Mary Lincoln became a devotee of Spiritualism making the White House a center for Washington, D.C.’s spiritualist community. For decades historians have maintained that President Lincoln only attended a few séances in an attempt to protect his mentally unstable wife. This narrative is incorrect, using a host of previously neglected primary sources, historian Michelle L. Hamilton documents the numerous séances President Lincoln attended and the interest he had for the religion.
