Abraham Lincoln at Muskego Library

Abraham Lincoln: A New Birth of Freedom

Mr. Lincoln himself shares his experiences and thoughts on 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.

Hear about the events which led Lincoln back into politics in the mid-1850s, the ever-escalating increase in tensions, his election as President, and, of course, the Civil War and signing the Declaration of Independence. You'll hear directly from some of 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.

Suitable for all ages, this program will take place on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 6:30 PM at the Muskego Public Library, S73W16663 Janesville Road, Muskego, WI 53150. For more information contact us at 262-971-2100. No registration required. Lincoln is portrayed by Kevin J. Wood:
