Tuesday, June 7: James A. Garfield National Historic Site

At first glance, Abraham Lincoln and James A. Garfield have some obvious similarities: they were both bearded Republican presidents struck down by assassins.  But there's much more to the story than that!  Lincoln and Garfield knew one another and shared many similar views.  In fact, without Lincoln's intervention, James Garfield might never have served in Congress or become President of the United States.  But there were also some stark differences between the two as well, and Garfield privately expressed frustration with President Lincoln.  This presentation will explore many of the similarities and differences between the nation's sixteenth President, Abraham Lincoln, and its twentieth President, James A. Garfield

Tuesday, June 14 : Exploring Lincoln in Washington: National Mall and Ford’s Theatre

 

 

Ford’s Theatre and The National Mall and Memorial Parks join forces to explore what Washington, D.C., was like for President Lincoln and how the city has grown and changed over time. Examine places that mattered to Lincoln during his lifetime and places where he matters to us today, including the U.S. Capitol, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and Ford’s Theatre. In this interactive program, participants will look closely at historic and contemporary images of Washington D.C. including maps, photographs and illustrations.

Casa Grande.jpg

Tuesday, June 21: Casa Grande Ruins National Monument

The building of the Casa Grande was a major event of the Classic Period (1100 – 1450 C.E.). The best dating methods available indicate that this large, caliche structure was built during the 1300's. The construction appears to have been well planned and organized, requiring tons of material and a huge cooperative effort on the part of many people. Today we can only marvel at the Casa Grande and try to imagine what it was used for. Though many theories have been suggested, we still aren’t sure as to its purpose. All we can assume is that the Casa Grande must have been very important to the people who built it. Join us as we learn about this fascinating mystery in Arizona!
