Author and Lincoln scholar Steven K. Rogstad will lead specialty tours of the Lincoln-Tallman House, focusing on little-known facts about Lincoln. Rogstad's research shows that Abraham and Mary Lincoln were both superstitious individuals, each of whom suffered through the deaths of numerous friends and family members. Both had experiences with dreams, omens, and portents of future events. These one-day-only tours offer the opportunity for the public to learn about the mansion from one of the state's pre-eminent Lincoln scholars. Each tour includes a copy of Rogstad’s Lincoln among the Badgers book. The tours will be followed by a presentation at the Tallman Carriage House at 6 PM. Read more about the presentation here. Tours are limited to 15 people and will run at 11 AM, 1 PM , and 2 PM. Reservations are encouraged and may be made by calling the RCHS.
