A viewing the Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition, “American Democracy: A Great Leap of Faith,” is scheduled for 5 p.m. It examines our government’s founding and the continuing story of America’s bold experiment in a government “of, by, and for the people.” The exhibition features multimedia experiences, immersive design, and artifacts from the Smithsonian.

At 6 p.m., Krebs and Miller will participate in “Interpreting Lincoln: Yesterday and Today,” a discussion of President Lincoln’s legacy and how it has grown. They will share their perspectives as living historians and the lessons they have learned from President and Mrs. Lincoln. Participating virtually will be Michael Atwood Mason, the CEO and Executive Director of President Lincoln’s Cottage, a historic site and museum in Washington, D.C.
