For the Union Launch Party


Join us at the launch party of Malcolm Johnstone’s eagerly awaited book For the Union, which follows the extraordinary story of how Quaker abolition, a hanging, a slave riot and a small newspaper in West Chester set the stage to launch Lincoln’s quest for the presidency.
