John McKinsey, author of The Lincoln Secret, which is a work of fiction, will
be at City Lights on Thursday, July 16th at 7:00 p.m. to present a program
based on his research into Abraham Lincoln's ancestry and a possible North
Carolina link. Was Abraham Enloe, rather than Thomas Lincoln, really Lincoln's father? McKinsey's book is a contemporary mystery with historical elements, and McKinsey conducted extensive research into the Lincoln family history.
The Lincoln Secret is a modern-day, mystery-adventure novel featuring real historical mysteries about Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War. One of the central mysteries about Lincoln involves his origin and who his father really was. He may have been fathered not by Thomas Lincoln in Kentucky but by Abraham Enloe in North Carolina.
