Lincoln

Adults and children alike will enjoy hearing a first-hand account from Mr. Lincoln himself of the history of the USA from our establishment in 1776 through the end of the Civil War in 1865. Mr. Lincoln quotes from his best-known speeches and writings, while also providing some surprising and interesting perspectives. And while Mr. Lincoln talks about history, he also talks about "his story": growing up on the frontier, his great desire to learn, the different jobs he had, why he liked to tell stories, what he keeps inside his hat, etc.

Mr. Lincoln is portrayed by Kevin Wood, a professional Lincoln presenter who bears a remarkable resemblance to "the Great Emancipator" and who is extremely knowledgeable about his life and times.
