Thank you, Mr. Presidents

“President Abraham Lincoln was wrong at Gettysburg when he said, ‘The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.’” That was how Professor Philip Eliasoph on Monday welcomed the Open VISIONS Forum audience at Fairfield University to hear Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer speak…The president of the university, the Rev. Jeffrey P. von Arx, S.J., said Holzer began Fairfield’s remembrance of Lincoln at the Pequot Library where he met with a group of Fairfield’s high school students who discussed Lincoln’s presidency.”
