Ramona resident Michael Harrison, a history buff, will lead a talk on the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln and recent research on the topic at the Feb. 21 meeting of the Ramona Pioneer Historical Society.
The meeting will be in the Barnett Barn on the grounds of the Guy B. Woodward Museum, 645 Main St., at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited.
Those attending are asked to bring a main dish, salad or dessert to serve about eight people.
Harrison is deputy district chief of staff for Congressman Duncan D. Hunter. He also worked for Hunter’s father, former Congressman Duncan Hunter, having worked for them in San Diego and Washington, D.C., for 17 years.
Lincoln’s assassination dramatically and suddenly changed the course of the nation’s history. Harrison has met several Lincoln authors in Washington, D.C. Books such as Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing Lincoln” have added to the understanding of such pivotal characters as John Wilkes Booth and Dr. Samuel Mudd, states a news release from the historical society.
