Abe Lincoln: A New Birth of Freedom – North Branch

Abraham Lincoln will be stopping by for an entertaining and educational chat. Hear historical background, the events which led Mr. Lincoln back into politics in the mid-1850s, the ever-escalating increase in tensions, Mr. Lincoln's election as President, and of course the Civil War. You'll hear directly from some of Mr. Lincoln's best-known speeches and writings, and you will be inspired to hope as he did for a "new birth of freedom" for our country. This is Mr. Lincoln's basic historical presentation, centering on the twelve turbulent years from 1854-1865, when the slavery issue which had been divisive from the very beginning of our country came to a head and nearly broke us apart. Abraham Lincoln will be portrayed by Mr. Kevin Wood. All ages welcome, but aimed at adults and children 6 and up.
