Prize-winning historian Walter Stahr will be the featured speaker at the upcoming meeting of the Inland Empire Civil War Round Table on Wednesday, May 9th at 6:30pm in the Lincoln Memorial Shrine. Stahr will discuss the life of Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, who was in charge of the Union Army from 1862 through 1868, and will focus on his Civil War years and relationship with Lincoln. Stahr will also discuss his new subject, Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase, a project which has already brought him to the Lincoln Memorial Shrine for research.
The program is free and open to the public. Registration is requested, but not required. The Lincoln Memorial Shrine is located at 125 W. Vine Street in Redlands. For more information, please contact the Heritage Room at (909)798-7632
