Presentation on Civil War prison camps at LMU

The Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum (ALLM) on the campus of Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) in Harrogate, Tenn., will host speaker Tom Daily, director of the Cuyahoga County (Ohio) Civil War Monument on Saturday, October 19, at 2 p.m. The talk is entitled “Prison Camps of the War, North and South,” and is free and open to the public.

Daily’s talk is part of a program sponsored by the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States (MOLLUS), which is holding its annual Congress at the ALLM this weekend. MOLLUS is a patriotic order founded the day after President Abraham Lincoln’s assassination in 1865 to demonstrate loyalty during a time when many rumors concerning the potential overthrow of the American government were rampant. Current members of the association include descendants of Civil War officers.

The Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum is located on the historic campus of Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee. Housing one of the top five Lincoln and Civil War private collections in the world, the Museum is open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about this and other programs at the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum, call 423-869-6235.
