On Wednesday, June 19, Philipse Manor Hall State Historic Site will hold its first of a series of lunch lectures called Lunches with History. The topic of the first Lunches with History will be Unlocking the Lincoln Letter. In this hour-long conversation, participants will discover one of Philipse Manor Hall’s most unique artifacts—- a letter from Abraham Lincoln to the City of Yonkers. Participants will learn about Lincoln’s involvement and legacy in Yonkers, as well as the rest of the country during the turbulent Civil War period. The lecture begins at 12:00 p.m and ends at 1:00 p.m.
Admission for the lecture is free and participants are encouraged to bring lunch. For information or questions, please call Philipse Manor Hall's Public Programs Coordinator at (914) 965-4027 x102.
