Join us for special events this March as President Abraham Lincoln comes to our Hamilton/South Caddo Branch and Broadmoor Branch. He will be sharing stories and tales from his days as president and his place in American history during two different programs on Wednesday, March 27.
Mr. Lincoln will first stop at our Hamilton/South Caddo Branch at 11 a.m., where he will present “Lincoln as Story-Teller.” During this program for ages 12 and up, he will share some of his favorite jokes and stories and explain why he used these so often. You’ll get a good dose of the nation’s history and Mr. Lincoln’s personal history.
During the next program at our Broadmoor Branch at 4 p.m., Mr. Lincoln will share the program, “A New Birth of Freedom.” He will talk about the twelve turbulent years from 1854-1865 when he was elected president and the Civil War occurred. You’ll hear directly from some of his best known speeches and writings, and you’ll be inspired to hope for a new birth of freedom for our country. This program will be for adults and children ages 6 and up.
For these performances, Mr. Lincoln will be portrayed by Kevin Wood, of Oak Park, Illinois. He travels across the United States performing programs in schools, libraries, and more as President Abraham Lincoln.
