Join us for a portrayal of Abraham Lincoln by Kevin Wood at 6:30 p.m., Monday, January 28 at the Batavia Library. Mr. Wood will talk about the 12 turbulent years from 1854 to 1865, when the issue of slavery in America came to a head and nearly broke the country in half. Hear about the events which led Mr. Lincoln back into politics in the mid-1850s, the ever-escalating tensions, Lincoln's election as president, and the Civil War. Some of President Lincoln's best-known speeches and writings will be presented, recalling his wishes for a "new birth of freedom" for our country.
