Join Leesburg Public Library for a first-hand account from Abraham Lincoln, portrayed by Kevin Wood, about the history of the United States during his time from his childhood on the frontier to the 12 turbulent years from 1854-1865 that resulted in a new birth of freedom. This is a 60-minute program followed by 30 minutes of Q&A. Lincoln is portrayed by Kevin Wood, a professional Lincoln presenter.
