“JOHN NICOLAY, LINCOLN’S SECRETARY AND BIOGRAPHER.”

John Nicolay had an interesting route to end up as friend and confidant to President Lincoln – and to his surprise after the campaign, was asked to work in the Lincoln White House. His devotion to the Union Cause, and his devotion to the dead President becomes an interesting story to hear. On June 6, he comes back to give us some surprising details of his life – before, during and after his work in the Executive Mansion.  Seeing how both Providence and coincidence weave through his life makes him a man much remembered in our time – for his own life story, as well as how he gave us the Lincoln we know today.

By distinguished ‘Living Historian’ John Voris
