Guillory speaks both of Lincoln and war’s longstanding effects on culture
by Ariana Cherry
“You have to understand the Civil War to understand the American lifestyle,” said author Dan Guillory at the “Civil War and Abe Lincoln” presentation he gave last Tuesday at the Elizabeth Titus Memorial Library.
Guillory is a local author with nine published books that include “The Lincoln Poems,” which was honored in 2009 at the Lincoln Bicentennial Celebration. The book is also on display at the Ford Theater Museum in Washington, D.C. Guillory is Professor Emeritus of English at Millikin University, and it’s no coincidence that he gave a presentation about the Civil War that evening.
