Abraham Lincoln:  A New Birth of Freedom

Enjoy hearing a first-hand account of the history of the United States of America from Abraham Lincoln himself when he speaks at the East Regional Library on Wednesday, January 24 at 6pm.

He’ll describe 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 is one of our nation’s most beloved and esteemed historical figures. He will share quotes from his best-known speeches and writings, and he will also talk about his own inspiring story of how he rose from a humble background to the highest office in the land through self-study, hard work, ambition, and a strong moral character. 

This program is designed for adults and for children from ages 6+.

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. He has made nearly 2,000 appearances in 33 states plus Washington DC and Canada and Spain.
