SharePrint We Are Coming, Father Abram: Abraham Lincoln and the Songs of the Civil War

February 27, 2014

Buckhannon, Upshur


The Annie Merner Pfeiffer Library, the Honors Program, and the Department of Music at West Virginia Wesleyan College will hold a special event on Thursday, February 27 at 7 p.m. in the Virginia Thomas Law Center for the Performing Arts on the Buckhannon campus.

“We Are Coming, Father Abram: Abraham Lincoln and the Songs of the Civil War” by Michael Lasser reveals Abraham Lincoln in song as his countrymen saw him performed by musicians Lasser, Cindy Miller, and Alan Jones.

Charles A. Jones, a 1904 graduate of the College, then called West Virginia Conference Seminary, donated an impressive collection of materials about Abraham Lincoln to the Annie Merner Pfeiffer Library. Last summer, Lasser discovered this collection and called the library to explore the possibility of bringing this program to campus. This event is free and open to the public and is made possible in large part from gifts from the Jones’ family.
