Mr Lincoln: A New Birth of Freedom

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. Held at the Juneau Public Library on Thursday, February 3rd at 5:30 pm, this program is most appropriate for adults and children from six years old on up. The program will run 60 minutes and is followed by an additional time of Q&A, photos, and informal interaction. Light refreshments will be provided by the local Homemakers Group. Call the library for more information at 920-386-4805.
