Wed. March 22, 2017 Meeting

 Curtiss Wittbracht,


"Myths and Facts about Lincoln"
Many myths have grown up about Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States.  But maybe some of them are true after all!  Mr. Wittbracht will explore some of the lessor known aspects of Lincoln's life involving his loves, his faith, one of his more unusual legal cases, the dual that never occurred and the unknown assassination attempt.

Civil War Trivia
During the American Civil War, soldiers were required to have at least four front opposing teeth, so that they could open a gunpowder pouch.

Some men had their four front teeth removed in order to avoid being drafted into army service.  Hence, this became known as the draft exemption: 4F.





There were six million cases of disease within the troops, meaning that, on average, each soldier
contracted at least two diseases.
