President Lincoln comes to New Milford

May 1, 2009

MPj02020840000[1] This Sunday, May 3rd at 2 p.m.  the New Milford Historical Society will present “Simply Lincoln”, a wonderful theatrical performance by Howard Wright.

Mr. Wright is a member of the Association of Lincoln Presenters, a rather interesting group of men who portray Mr. Lincoln. The motto on their website is “Would I Might Rouse The Lincoln In You All”.

According to Mr. Wrights website, his purpose is to bring the amazing words written by Mr. Lincoln to all, to give us a chance to better know this great man.  The Presidents own words are used, taken from Roy. P. Basler’s eight volume set, The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln.

Of course President Lincoln will appear in his usual garb, complete with his black frock and stovepipe hat. For more information please call the New Milford Historical Society at 860.354.3069. Admission is $5.00.
