Prof. Emeritus Boritt mentioned in Journal News article on historian Harold Holzer's Lincoln focus

Prof. Emeritus Gabor Boritt was mentioned as a colleague an collaborator of historian Harold Holzer's in a June 28 Journal News article.

From the Journal News:

His first book, 1983’s “The Lincoln Image,” was a collaboration with Gettysburg College’s Gabor Boritt. When the book was written, Boritt launched it with a companion exhibition in Gettysburg.

“So my first real book and exhibition project centered around Gettysburg,” says Holzer. “And Gettysburg College was right in the middle of the second day’s battle, so it’s all part of the same story.”

Holzer will be there Sunday, part of a panel of historians marking the 150th anniversary of the battle. And he plans to be there Nov. 16 to 18, as vice chairman of the Lincoln Forum, which gathers to mark the anniversary of the famous speech, joined by James McPherson, the dean of Civil War scholars, and Tony Kushner, who wrote the screenplay for Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning film “Lincoln.”
