Museum to show PBS series on Abe Lincoln
A free screening of the PBS series “Looking for Lincoln,” will be Thursday at the Museum of the West, 462 Ute Ave., kicking off a series of events recognizing the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth.
The screening is courtesy of the Colorado Abraham Lincoln Commission, on which Mike Perry, executive director of the Museum of Western Colorado, sits.
The commission was established to lead efforts to mark the significance of the 16th president, his vision and his presidency, and to heighten awareness of how the West shaped Lincoln and how Lincoln shaped the destiny of Colorado.
Steve Schulte, professor of history at Mesa State College, will introduce and comment on the series.
