From Cabin to Capitol:The Amazing Story of Abraham Lincoln
By Dale Reich

Dale Reich, born and raised in Oconomowoc, graduate of UW-Whitewater, Masters in Education and History, and published author of a variety of books will provide a general look at Lincoln’s life.  He has tidbits of interest and little-known facts (including his foray into Wisconsin in 1832 as a soldier in the Blackhawk War). 

Dale has taught history classes at both the high school and college level, and has always been interested in Lincoln.  He has visited Springfield home and his grave site.

Come enjoy Dale’s love for our former President and view some of the books Dale has written on Oconomowoc history.
