Editor, Index-Tribune:

You don’t have to be a civil war buff to appreciate Mick Chantler’s current series of lectures at Vintage House, “The Many Faces of Abraham Lincoln.” These outstanding lectures are a wonderful opportunity to learn more about one of the premier figures in American politics and the forces that shaped our modern age.

There are four lectures remaining. They take place every Tuesday afternoon from 1 to 3 p.m. at Vintage House senior center, 264 First St. E.

Mr. Chandler teaches for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Sonoma State University, Dominican University and at UC Davis.
