PD in Your PJs: Lincoln’s Western Legacy
November 8th, 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm
For the PD in Your PJs series, we invite educators to come as you are, drink what you want, engage with the experts, and leave with 1.0 CPDU credit.
When we talk about Lincoln, we rightly usually focus on the Civil War and Emancipation. But the Lincoln administration also helped reshape the Western United States. Join Illinois and Midwest Studies Historian Jacob Friefeld for a discussion of the 1862 Dakota War and Lincoln’s lasting Western legacy. Following Dr. Friefeld's talk, participants will discuss educator resources and classroom application.
