Event Description

David Leroy will be here to explore the unique relationship between the sixteenth President and Idaho Territory, which he created in 1863, appointed friends to govern, mentioned in two State of the Union speeches, and even considered on the afternoon he was assassinated. Mr. Leroy defends the claim that more than Kentucky, Indiana, or Illinois, Idaho is the state most related to Lincoln!

David Leroy is chairman of the Idaho Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission and Chairman of the Governor's Council of the United States Lincoln Bicentennial Commission. A former prosecutor, Attorney General, and Lt. Governor, Dave has been lecturing on Lincoln since 1976. He is the author of many articles and a book on the sixteenth president, and has a collection of historic artifacts relating to Lincoln's life which he uses to enhance his talks. His interpretations and comments tell of the unknown, the unusual and the "real animal" as Lincoln called himself.

Mr. Leroy's appearance is sponsored by the Idaho Humanities Council.
