Austin Blair-War Governor Lecture at Sloan Museum in Flint

Austin Blair was sworn into office as Michigan’s thirteenth governor barely two weeks after South Carolina seceded from the Union. He was hailed as one of the greatest of the nation’s “War Governors”– those men whose loyal support was so critical to Lincoln’s success and the preservation of the Union. How did he do it? Why did he step down from office before the war was over? What do Michigan and the nation owe to Austin Blair? Discover the answers with this informative program with guest lecturer Kerry Chartkoff. Space is limited.
