Wild Hare Cafe, 104 Governor Oglesby St., Elkhart, Illinois


4:45 pm - 9:00 pm


Dean Williams presents The Making of Historical Film, “Abraham Lincoln in Logan County” offered by the Elkhart Historical Society at the Wild Hare Cafe in Elkhart. The doors will open at 4:45 pm and the dinner will begin promptly at 5:30 pm. This is a special Illinois Bicentennial project celebrating President Abraham Lincoln and the local community. Elkhart Historical Society is partnering with Lincoln College and the Central Illinois Film Commission to update the film, “Surveyor to President: Abraham Lincoln in Logan County.” The film, originally produced in 2003, is being revised to include footage of the new Lincoln Heritage Museum, highlights of the Lincoln/Oglesby connection, and additional information on President Lincoln’s support of the university that was to be built and named for him. The entire footage of the original film was shot in Logan County, and many at sites that are still in existence, and many of the extras are from Logan County as well. The film will be featured at the August 31st dinner lecture in Elkhart, with video copies available to the public for purchase.
