e6431388960e13064a07437b2b50d0e2Join us for a visit from Abraham Lincoln, portrayed by Steve Wood. Mr. Wood’s characterization of Abraham Lincoln begins by recounting Lincoln’s early life and ends with a reading of the “Gettysburg Address.” Along the way he comments on the debates with Stephen Douglas, his run for the presidency, and the Civil War.

Steve Wood, a graduate of the University of Maine, School of Forestry, worked for nearly thirty years with the UNH Cooperative Extension as an Extension Educator in Forest Resources, retiring at the end of 2003. He has been researching and presenting Living History programs as Abraham Lincoln since 1995. Steve is a member of the Association of Lincoln Presenters, the League for the Advancement of New England Storytelling, and the NH Storytelling Alliance.

This program is made possible through a grant from the NH Humanities and sponsored by the Atkinson Historical Society. Refreshments will be served! Free and open to the public.
