Event Details

Famed Abraham Lincoln reenactor, Kevin Wood, will present 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. Includes

  • the historical background (beginning with the Declaration of Independence)
  • the events which led Mr. Lincoln back into politics in the mid-1850s
  • the ever-escalating increase in tensions, Mr. Lincoln’s election as President
  • and, of course, the Civil War

You’ll hear directly from some of Mr. Lincoln’s best-known speeches and writings, and you will be inspired to hope as he did for a “new birth of freedom” for our country.

Wood utilizes his uncanny resemblance and thorough knowledge of Lincoln to wow audiences with Lincoln’s amazing story. He has been portraying Lincoln for over 12 years. Wood hails from Illinois where he lives with his wife.
