Abraham Lincoln: A New Birth of Freedom 

Abe Lincoln

Adults will enjoy hearing a first-hand account from Abraham Lincoln himself of the history of the United States of America during his time, from 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 was of course one of that latter period’s greatest protagonists, and today is one of our nation’s most beloved and esteemed historical figures.  Mr. Lincoln quotes from his best-known speeches and writings, and he also talks 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.
