Abe Lincoln: A New Birth of Freedom
- Date: 05/15/2019 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Ankeny, Iowa 50023
Mr. Lincoln is portrayed by Kevin Wood, a professional Lincoln presenter who bears a remarkable resemblance to The Great Emancipator. This program centers 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. Hear about the historical background, the events which led Mr. Lincoln back into politics in the mid-1850s, Mr. Lincoln's election as President, and of course the Civil War.
A program for all ages.
