 CAGGNI Proudly Presents

“From a Birth of a Nation

to a New Birth of Freedom”

Annual Holiday Potluck with Abraham Lincoln

10:30 a.m.

Saturday, 18 Nov 2017

Schaumburg Township District Library 

“President Abraham Lincoln” delivers a first-hand account of our nation’s history from our establishment in 1776 through the end of the Civil War in 1865. He discusses how our bold experiment in democracy, founded upon the ideals of liberty and equality, appeared destined to failure by 1854, but how the next dozen years instead brought a renewal and eventually an expansion of those great ideals: a “new birth of freedom.”

Kevin Wood is a professional Abraham Lincoln presenter/portrayer who bears a remarkable resemblance to Mr. Lincoln and who is extremely knowledgeable about his life and times. He does programs in a wide variety of settings and also writes a blog (“Loath to Close… Still!”) to encourage others to reflect upon and learn from Mr. Lincoln’s life and legacy.
