LIBRARY HOSTS TRAVELING EXHIBIT WAR OF 1812: A NATION FORGED IN WAR The Library is proud to host a traveling exhibit this September - War of 1812: A Nation Forged in War. This exhibit is on loan to us from the National Museum of the United States Navy in Annapolis, Maryland. The display commemorates the 200 year anniversary of the War of 1812 (fought between 1812-1815), and will be featured at nearly two hundred locations across the United States and Canada. War of 1812: A Nation Forged by War highlights the prominent role of the US Navy, US Marine Corps, and the US Revenue Cutter Service in bringing Great Britain to the negotiating table and forcing recognition of a truly independent United States. The exhibit tells the stories of heroic US Navy crews in battles on the oceans and Great lakes, as well as the contributions of sailors in celebrated battles from Canada to Louisiana. The exhibit will be at the Mineola Library’s Walter and Joan Hobbs Gallery for the entire month of September. In addition, we will be featuring two excellent programs on this era. On September 5, we will feature a lecture “From Battleground to Empire State: New York and the Legacy of 1812.” Then on September 19 we will host a musical show, “The War of 1812: A Musical Exploration of the Era with Frank Hendricks and Linda Pratt.” Please see the Adult Programs section of this newsletter for more information on these programs.

LIBRARY TO COMMEMORATE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS On November 19, 1863, the greatest speech in American history was delivered by President Abraham Lincoln in the small town of Gettysburg, PA. Lincoln was there to dedicate a cemetery for the casualties of the battle that took place in Gettysburg in July of that year. Lincoln’s short but moving speech became known as “The Gettysburg Address” and helped to heal the wounds of a divided nation. The speech still resonates today, both in our country and around the world. On Tuesday, November 19, 2013, at 12 noon, the library will host a reenactment of the Gettysburg Address on the front lawn of the library. Our special guest will be “Lincoln Presenter” Bob Costello, who appeared as Lincoln in 2009 at our special Lincoln exhibit. Following the reenactment, guests are invited into the library for refreshments. At 1:00PM, Mr. Costello (again appearing as Lincoln) will give a one hour program on the Gettysburg Address--the events that led up to it, its effect on the last two years of the war and Lincoln’s life. Please make plans to join us for this special event.
