[March 13, 2012]  ELKHART  -- The Elkhart Historical Society will present the second of a new season of lectures at the Wild Hare Cafe in Elkhart on Friday. "Abraham Lincoln in Logan County, and the Irish Connection" will be presented by Paul Beaver, professor emeritus of Lincoln College. Beaver will talk on little-known facts about Abraham Lincoln in Logan County during the years 1834-1860.

HardwareLincoln was a surveyor, lawyer and politician in and around Logan County and left much documented information, some of which has previously been reported incorrectly in many publications over the years. Beaver will discuss the impact of the waves of Irish immigrants into Logan County, which had a direct influence on the political success of our 16th president.

An entertaining Irish night is planned, with music and corned beef and cabbage (an additional entrée is available).

The Friday night lecture is sold out, but reservations are being taken for another presentation of the lecture on March 26.

Reservation forms are available at www.elkharthistoricalsociety.org and the new www.wildharecafe-elk-il.com website.
