"With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."

“Daniel Chester French and the Making of the Lincoln Memorial”

The Lincoln Group of DC is pleased to announce that world-renowned Abraham Lincoln expert
Harold Holzer will wrap up our spring dinner series as our May 14, 2019 speaker. Holzer is
considered by many as the foremost expert on our 16 th president and has authored, co-authored,
and edited nearly 60 books (at last count). His latest book is called Monument Man, which
discusses the life of Daniel Chester French.

Daniel Chester French is perhaps America’s best-known sculptor of public monuments, most
notably the seated statue in the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, John Harvard in Harvard
Yard, and The Minute Man statue in Concord, Massachusetts. Harold Holzer’s Monument Man
is the first comprehensive biography of this fascinating figure and his illustrious career. Written
in Holzer’s legendary inimitable prose, the book offers a nuanced study of a preeminent artist
whose evolution ran parallel to, and deeply influenced, the development of American sculpture,
iconography, and historical memory. Holzer’s presentation is sure to full of the rich detail that
makes both him and this book a must-see event.

Holzer is currently the Jonathan F. Fanton Director of Hunter College’s Roosevelt House Public
Policy Institute. He has won many prestigious awards, including the Gilder-Lehrman Lincoln
Prize, the Mark Lynton History Prize, the Hazel-Dicken Garcia Award, and the Goldsmith Book
Prize.

Come celebrate the final dinner lecture of the Lincoln Group of DC’s spring 2019 season. What
better way to enter the summer than to join us for the most prolific and preeminent Lincoln
scholar in the nation, Harold Holzer.
