Abraham Lincoln portrayed by Kevin Wood will be here to present A New Birth of Freedom, a historical narrative centering on twelve turbulent years in U.S. history from 1854 to 1865 when the issue of slavery, which had been divisive from the very beginning of our country, came to a head and nearly broke our country apart.
This story begins with the Declaration of Independence, continues with the events that led Mr. Lincoln into politics in the mid-1850s and the ever-escalating increase in tension throughout the country, includes Mr. Lincoln's election as President, and culminates with the Civil War.
Hear hear directly from some of Mr. Lincoln's best-known speeches and writings. Be inspired to hope as he did for a "new birth of freedom" for our country.
