Hello. Today's podcast is my #5 idea for celebrating Lincoln's upcoming 200th birthday. There is nothing like walking in the steps of the person you are studying or sitting in a historical location. You can learn more about Lincoln by attending one of the three Lincoln workshops discussed in the podcast. A link to each of these opportunities - each of which provides a stipend. I have attended one of these workshops and really enjoyed the experience.
Horace Mann Abraham Lincoln Fellowship - June 21-27, 2009 and July 12-18, 2009 - Applications Due February 12, 2009
Landmarks of American History National Endowment for the Humanities Lincoln Workshop - June 14-19, 2009 and July 19-24, 2009 - Applications Due March 16, 2009
If you have attended one of these workshops in the past please leave a comment, we'll enjoy hearing about your experience.
