Speaker: Mark Holbrook, Harrodsburg, KY

Topic: Mr. Lincoln’s Camera Man: An Evening with Matthew Brady

For our October meeting, we are pleased to present Mark Holbrook. Come hear the story from Mathew Brady himself as the world renowned photographer and chronicler of the American Civil War. Brady's photographs of Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War have become icons of the early days of photography. Seeing these famous photos while listening to how the photos came about will make for a fascinating evening.

Appearing more than 40 times each year for lectures and character shows, Mr. Holbrook maintains a very busy schedule. Mark is a native Ohioan, graduate of The Ohio State University and an avid student of history. After college, Mark served as the marketing manager at the Ohio Historical Society for nine years. Currently, Mark Holbrook is the owner of History Is Personal, a strategic planning and marketing firm serving the history and tourism areas in Ohio. Mark is the editor of the recently published The Buckeye Vanguard about the 49th Ohio Volunteer Infantry and is currently working on his second book, expanding his Unknown Generals lecture. Mark has been a Civil War reenactor for more than 19 years, serving as a Union officer throughout the country at such places as Gettysburg, Chattanooga, Richmond and Shiloh. His lectures include Ohio in the Civil War, Ohio’s Unknown Generals and Itinerant Photography: Everyday Life in America. Mark also served as military coordinator for the film Light of Freedom released in the fall of 2013 and is currently cast in a new film, Wings of the Wind now in post production.
