To commemorate the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection's Lincoln at the Library program will present “Lincoln’s Gamble: The Emancipation Proclamation.”

This panel discussion of the context and effects of the Proclamation will be held on Sunday, January 13, 2013, in the Main Library's Meeting Room A, from 2:00 to 3:00 in the afternoon. Panelists will offer varying perspectives—political, historical, and cultural—on the Proclamation and will address questions from the audience. “Lincoln’s Gamble” is sponsored by the Friends of the Allen County Public Library.
