ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum is offering special programs to continue commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.

City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs Director Camille Love said in a release that the museum will present guest speakers and special film screenings between February and June.

Officials say authors William F. Moore and Jane Ann Moore are scheduled to deliver a free lecture on President Abraham Lincoln and the abolition of slavery on Feb. 12.

Officials say their book titled “Collaborators for Emancipation: Abraham Lincoln and Owen Lovejoy” explores the relationship between President Lincoln and Lovejoy, an abolitionist, and the impact their bond had on politics.
