About Us

The Abraham Lincoln Historical Society has been created by graduate and undergraduate students of the University of Massachusetts History Club. We are a group of enthusiasts who believe Abraham Lincoln was one of the most influential presidents in American history. Lincoln was poorly prepared when he became president but against all odds succeeded in destroying the most abhorrent of all institutions in Antebellum America, slavery.

There are many quality publications, many of them offer only basic information and others extra insight that might be difficult to understand. Our objective is to provide information that is accessible to every level. Our main sources are the Library of Congress and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library.
