Join Abraham Lincoln as he recounts his years growing up in Indiana. In his Hoosier formative years, he lost his mother and sister, taught himself to read, and learned the value of hard work. Following Lincoln’s time in Illinois as what many consider his prairie lawyer years, discover more about his life with Mary Todd and sons, political aspirations, debates with Stephen Douglas, Civil War tragedy and triumph, and ultimately, emancipation for slaves. Enjoy humor, heartbreak, humanity and brilliant speeches from one of America’s greatest leaders during a re-enactment of the life of our nation’s 16th president.

President Lincoln is portrayed by Danny Russell, an award-winning historical re-enactor.
