Lincoln's Ladder to the Presidency by Guy Fraker
On Thursday, November 29, from 7:00 to 8:45 p.m., in the Jean Evans Archives Room, join Bloomington-based attorney and author Guy Fraker, for a presentation and book signing. Fraker has just published Lincoln's Ladder to the Presidency: the Eighth Judicial Circuit and will be sharing his findings on the stories surrounding Lincoln’s time as a circuit-riding lawyer, where he spent much of his professional career. These years on the circuit proved formative for Lincoln, not just in developing his legal skills, but in forging partnerships and friendships which would be crucial years later for Lincoln as an aspirant for political office. Immediately following the presentation, copies of Fraker's new and long-awaited book will be available for purchase.
