Remembering Abraham Lincoln
From the Series Setting the Stage for Fluency
The 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln was killed by an assassin’s bullet on April 15, 1865. Lincoln preserved the union of the nation, but after the Civil War he struggled with Congress and the people over Reconstruction. Despite the war and political strife, Lincoln’s life and legacy touched the hearts and souls of millions then as it does today. This play draws from the writings of many of those people and from Lincoln himself.
