“A New Birth of Freedom: Abraham Lincoln’s Abiding Call”

Sterling-Rock Falls Historical Society

Abraham Lincoln portrayer Kevin Wood will present “A New Birth of Freedom: Abraham Lincoln’s Abiding Call.” This presentation centers on the twelve turbulent years from 1854-1865 and is a first-hand account from one of that period’s greatest protagonists, Abraham Lincoln, from the time he was roused to re-enter the political arena all the way through his pivotal tenure as President during the Civil War. Mr. Lincoln, as portrayed by Wood, quotes from his best-known speeches and writings, while also providing some surprising and interesting perspectives.
