Graves-Hume Library to present Abraham Lincoln: A new birth of freedom

MENDOTA – Graves-Hume Public Library will present an exciting and informative program, Abraham Lincoln: A New Birth of Freedom, on Monday, Sept. 26 at 6:30 p.m.

Adults and children alike will enjoy hearing a first-hand account from Abraham Lincoln himself of the history of the United States of America during his time, from his childhood on the frontier to the 12 turbulent years from 1854 to 1865, which nearly destroyed our young nation but eventually resulted in a “new birth of freedom.”

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. He quotes from his best-known speeches and writings and talks about his inspiring story. Mr. Wood has been portraying Mr. Lincoln since the year 2000, and on a professional basis since 2015.
