Leach Library Hosts “A Visit with Abraham Lincoln”

On Thursday, February 12 at 7:00 p.m. the Leach Library will host Abraham Lincoln, as he is brought vividly to life by historical re-enactor, Steve Wood.

Mr. Wood is the one hundred and eighteenth member of the Association of Lincoln Presenters (ALP) and has portrayed the deceased president at schools, libraries, historical societies, and community events in New Hampshire and Vermont since 1995. He has also been featured in New Hampshire Magazine, on WMUR (NH) Chronicle, WCVB (Boston) Chronicle, and New Hampshire Public Radio’s The Exchange.

In this program, Mr. Lincoln will recount the early days of his life. He will also discuss debates with such people as Stephen Douglas, his run for presidency, and the Civil War before ending with a reading of the “Gettysburg Address”.

This presentation is free and open to the public with seating limited to the first 90 individuals. It will be held in the library’s lower-level meeting room. Light refreshments will be served.
