“Now He Belongs to the Ages . . .”

Exactly four weeks from today, on Thursday April 15th — the 145th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s death at the hands of an assassin — the Haysville Community Library will host a very special program on the assassination, its implications and aftermath.

Dr. J.C. Combs, Professor Emeritus of Wichita State University, will discuss the realities and the consequences of the first assassination of an American president, the murder of the man who is consistently rated as America’s greatest president, in “Now He Belongs to the Ages.”

The present year is the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s election to the presidency of a divided and soon to be warring country. Next year we will begin celebrating the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War. Please join us on April 15th for the first of many programs to come on this still vital topic of an America at war with itself.
