When: 10/24/22 @6pm
Where: Library Nonfiction Art Wall
Who: Ages 13+
Abraham Lincoln, in period dress, discusses the history of the United States during his time, from his childhood on the frontier to the twelve turbulent years from 1854 to 1865 which nearly destroyed our young nation but instead eventually resulted in a “new birth of freedom.” Mr. Lincoln quotes from his best-known speeches and writings, and he also talks about his own inspiring story, of how he rose from a humble background to the highest office in the land. The program will include a time of Q&A and photos at the end. Mr. Lincoln is portrayed by Kevin Wood, a professional Lincoln presenter who bears a remarkable resemblance to the “Great Emancipator” and who is extremely knowledgeable about his life and times.
