NEW CASTLE — New Castle-Henry County Public Library is celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln with a series of Civil War-related activities.

The programs take place in the library’s auditorium, and those who attend programs before Feb. 12 will be eligible to win prizes during Lincoln’s birthday party on the 12th. 

The series of Civil War films continues at a new time. The following films will be featured at 3 p.m. on Fridays.

On Feb. 13, the library will begin a three-part showing of the miniseries “Roots” in honor of Black History Month. This series will be shown at 3 p.m. on February 13, 20, and 24. 

Special guests will share their Civil War knowledge at 2 p.m. on the following Saturdays:

Jan. 10- “The Sword and the Pen: A Life of Lew Wallace”

Ray Boomhower of the Indiana Historical Society will present a slide show and discussion about Lew Wallace, a notable Hoosier who served heroically during the Civil War and also wrote the book Ben Hur.

Jan. 17- “Civil War History Through Song”

Living history presenter Kevin Stonerock will share songs and stories related to the Civil War.

Feb. 14-” Hasty Puddin’”

Hasty Puddin’, an acoustic band featuring Celtic and American folk music, will perform. 

Enjoy cake and a presentation about the life of Abraham Lincoln on Thursday, Feb. 12, at 3:30 p.m. during the “Lincoln Birthday Bash.” Another event will take place on Wednesday, February 18, at 7:30 p.m. “Captain Henry Tuttle” will be at the library to talk about Civil War-era telegraphy and provide a hands-on demonstration.  

Look for displays throughout the library including the exhibit “Civil War Faces” from Jan. 7 to Feb. 4 which features Hoosiers who made a difference during the Civil War. This exhibit is on loan from the Indiana Historical Society.
