Abraham and Mary Lincoln: The Long and the Short of It

Abraham and Mary Lincoln : The Long and the Short of It

Steve and Sharon Wood, Claremont, will present "Abraham and Mary Lincoln: the Long and the Short of It," a living history program set in 1861. Their story tells of the distinctly different paths that led each of the Lincolns to Springfield, Illinois, where they met, married and began a family. The years that followed their move to the White House were filled with personal and national crises. After the program, the Woods will step out of character and answer audience questions.

Co-sponsored by the Bedford Historical Society and the Bedford Public Library.
