Nathanial Berkowitz, ERT Member,-Politics: Whigs and Tea Party

Nathaniel Berkowitz will do a interactive program based on his experiences in Coles County Illinois expanding on the Gettysburg presentation of last week with the following thesis:  

"Whigs, Know Nothings, Democrats both North and South,Copperheads
and Republicans.  The issue was slavery, the economy (agriculture
and banking) and of course the Civil War.  The link between Lincoln
and Coles County makes for an interesting background to our present day
conflict between the civil old Republicans and the militant Tea Party of 
today.  It can be an interesting discussion and hopefully a topic for debate."

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
