Program Description

Our Illustrious Dead:
Post-Mortem Abraham Lincoln

Join Lee Eutsey as he educates, entertains, and invites participation by Abraham Lincoln enthusiasts of all ages while presenting information that most rarely consider: the people, events, and stories associated with the 16th President's body post-assassination. Researched and told from the point of view of a modern funeral director/embalmer, this is Lincoln history that has rarely been revealed. 

Eutsey is a lifelong resident of Central Illinois, a graduate of Worsham College, and a licensed funeral director/embalmer. As a self-taught, self-described Lincoln postmortem historian, he regularly works with recognized Lincoln professionals in the field. His article The Grim Harvest was recently published by the Abraham Lincoln Association. He is currently working on his first book about this topic.
