Pres. Lincoln to visit

Kevin Wood will portray Pres. Lincoln at the Clay Center Library this week.

President Abraham Lincoln is coming to The Clay Center Carnegie Library at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12.

Kevin Wood, who will portray the Civil War president, will give a presentation title “A New Birth of Freedom.” This is Lincoln’s basic historical presentation, centering on the 12 turbulent years from 1854-1865, when the slavery issue which had been divisive from the very beginning of our country came to a head and nearly broke us apart.
