Newtown Historic Association presents
“Presidential Assassins”

The February Meeting of the Newtown Historic Association will be held on Monday, February 19th at 7:30 PM at the Half-Moon Inn, 105 Court St., Newtown.

The Newtown Historic Association has invited Hugh Boyle, the Executive Director of the Grand Army of the Republic Museum & Library in Philadelphia, to give a lecture on “Presidential Assassins”. This lecture will examine the men who were part of the conspiracy to kill presidents. Who were they and why did they do it and what justice did they receive?

Mr. Boyle is also on the Board of Trustees of the Abraham Lincoln Foundation of the Union League of Phila., and also on the Board of the Neshaminy Living History Association. He has lectured to historical societies, museums, schools and at seminars and symposia on Abraham Lincoln and has appeared on Public Television lecturing on Lincoln’s Assassins.

The public is invited and refreshments will be served. This will prove to be a very interesting and informative meeting. For further information call 215-968-3914 or visit the NHA Website www.newtownhistoric.org.
