More than 400 schools now have “Abraham Lincoln and Mexico” book


Historian/ Educator Michael Hogan with his Advanced Placement US History class that inspired him to research and write his book “Abraham Lincoln and Mexico”

During the past year, educators in more than 400 schools have received a copy of Abraham Lincoln and Mexico from the Lincoln and Mexico Project (LAMP) as supplemental classroom material. 

The book by historian/ educator Michael Hogan examines historical relations between the USA and Mexico in the 1840s-1860s by focusing on Abraham Lincoln’s support for Mexico as congressman and president. It’s great way for educators to stimulate classroom discussion because it includes archival documents that contain facts textbooks often distort or marginalize.

“It is an excellent resource for use in the classroom,” stated Professor Megan Lange of Santa Ana College in her online H-FedHist review praising the inclusion of primary source documents and Internet links for endnotes. “At just under two hundred pages of text Abraham Lincoln and Mexico is concise but minces no words and, in an era of ugly political rhetoric and wall building at the border, is ever so timely.”

LAMP provides the award-winning 2016 eBook version to classroom teachers at no cost for educational purposes, and to evaluate the content before ordering paid print versions for social studies courses. Several high schools and colleges are already using the book, and some high school educators have also requested the three-act student play as additional material along with lesson plans based on the book and the play. If you know an educator who might be interested in obtaining the free eBook without obligation, just send an email to and we’ll follow up.

In the USA, the book is already in 390 schools in 39 states plus the District of Columbia. It’s also in another 22 international schools in Mexico, Bangladesh, Belarus, China, Egypt, Germany, Pago Pago, and South Korea. Here’s the list of schools with the book as of Feb. 28, 2019:

Advisory Council members boost outreach efforts



New members (l-r): Mauri Shuler, Mark Collins, and Madison Barlow

We’re proud to profile three new members of the LAMP Advisory Council who are helping with outreach efforts to news media, educators, and social media.

Mauri Shuler, a retired NBC News journalist from Seattle, has a strong background in international communications and in community college education, and is working with LAMP to develop outreach activities to news media and community colleges.

For 30 years, she worked in broadcast news as a reporter, producer, editor, and manager in a career that spanned the globe from California to China and the Philippines, from Israel to Argentina, and points in between. As NBC Bureau Chief in Tel Aviv, Israel, during the first Intifada, she arranged the first live broadcast from the Old City in Jerusalem. She managed a full team, including live Nightly News broadcasts, from the 1986 Mexico City earthquake. Her other coverage included the wars of Central America during the 80s, the revolution in the Philippines, dictatorships and uprisings in South America and, finally, the Persian Gulf War in 1991 and the Oklahoma City terrorist bombing in 1995. She was nominated for a national Emmy Award for her Middle East work and received two regional Emmys for television news production.

Mauri is a strong supporter of community colleges and has been a member of the Board of Trustees of Edmonds Community College and president of the Trustees Association of Community and Technical Colleges. As a Public Affairs volunteer for the American Red Cross, she is responsible for writing, editing and posting stories and photographs about disasters and the Red Cross. She has also acted as a Red Cross spokesperson doing television, radio and print interviews.

Mark Collins is a teacher in Prince George’s County, Maryland, who will be advising LAMP on ways of connecting with teachers in the DC, MD, and VA area. He has taught various history, government, and social studies related courses over a career of several decades in Washington, DC, and is currently teaching at Suitland High School in Forestville. He has written curriculum and standards for D.C. Public Schools in history, served as a cooperating teacher for student teachers, and has served on a wide variety of panels and committees during his career.

As a result of a series of Facebook posts he discovered the connection between Abraham Lincoln and Mexico, and the Abraham Lincoln and Mexico website, which has also piqued an interest in researching and writing about Lincoln’s diplomatic appointees and foreign policy during his term in office. One of his favorite historical sites is in Washington, DC and that site is Fort Stevens. Mark earned a BA in Political Science from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ and later this year will finally enroll in a Master’s program in American History.

Madison Barlow is a recent college graduate who is marketing coordinator for a finance company in Newport, RI, and she is helping LAMP with social media strategies and content. At Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York, she studied Integrated Marketing Communications and Writing and her college concentrations included social media marketing, brand management, event planning & management, and creative writing, plus she held positions on Ithaca College’s campus as lead Image-Text Editor for Stillwater Literary Magazine and Contributing Writer for Buzzsaw Magazine. During the summer of 2018, she had a position as Communications Intern for a business in Providence, Rhode Island, where she participated in a number of projects with the marketing team, including managing social media platforms, publishing press releases, and designing marketing materials.
