About the Event
Hilarity, heartbreak and humanity abound as President Lincoln (portrayed by DANNY RUSSEL) appears just after Independence Day. In Indiana, he loses his mother and sister, teaches himself to read, and learns the value of hard work. Then he's on to Illinois for prairie lawyer years, life with Mary and sons, political aspirations, and debates for the Senate with Stephen Douglas. We close with Civil War tragedy and triumph, freedom for enslaved people and brilliant speeches. All ages will enjoy Honest Abe's amazing and inspiring journey from log cabin to White House!
