Tom Teghtmeyer kicked off the 2016 History Chats on May 17 with an interesting talk on the life and presidency of Abraham Lincoln. It was a well-attended and appreciated discussion.

History Chats are an ongoing series of informal talks by a guest speaker hosted at the Bremen History Center and are free and open to the public.

Unless otherwise noted, they take place at 10:30 a.m. Please enter by the old bank entrance at the corner of Plymouth and Center.

Those who attend find the talks very interesting. Come and bring a friend and enjoy the morning. We record each History Chat so that there will be a library of the past talks for people to watch at the History Center in the future.

Suggestions for future History Chats are always welcome. Please contact Ann Scott at 574-546-2215.
