In a new biography, author Elizabeth D. Leonard illuminates the history of
the seldom-discussed but important figure in Lincoln’s presidency, Joseph Holt.

Leonard will discuss and sign "Lincoln’s Forgotten Ally: Judge Advocate
General Joseph Holt of Kentucky" (University of North Carolina Press,
2011) on Wednesday, July 25 (2012), at noon in the Mumford Room, located on the
sixth floor of the James Madison Building, 101 Independence Ave. S.E.,
Washington, D.C.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress and the Manuscript Division, where Leonard did much of her research. It is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.

Elizabeth D. Leonard is the John J. and Cornelia V. Gibson Professor of
History at Colby College. She is the author of several other books,
including "Lincoln’s Avengers: Justice, Revenge and Reunion After the
Civil War."
