Thursday, October 21, 2021 7pm central time Zoom presentation by Valerie Gugala “Mary Lincoln & the Spiritualists” – After the death of her son Willie, Mary Lincoln held seances in the White House to try to contact him and other deceased relatives. Why did Mary (and many other bereaved families) believe in the spiritualist movement? What happened at these Seances? Did Abraham Lincoln ever attend one?
