Influenced by the border region from which he came, Hopewell will speak of Lincoln’s extraordinary compassion. She will share insights on how Lincoln managed to steer the country through the Civil War, as well as relate some of the tragedies of Lincoln’s personal life. Excerpts from his excellent speeches will also be given. All in all, a well rounded picture of perhaps our most beloved President will emerge.
