Home Library Programs An Evening with Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln

An Evening with Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln

Enjoy an actor portrayal at Marshall Public Library of Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln on Thursday, March 1st at 6:30 pm. "An Evening With Mr. & Mrs. Lincoln" takes place in the White House at the end of the Civil War (April 1865).  As the President and Mrs. Lincoln reflect on the events of the past four years and their plans for the future, the play flashes back to the beginning of their lives together - their courtship and early marriage,  the births of their children, Mr. Lincoln's legal career and the development of his political career - and brings the audience all the way forward through the tumultuous years of the Civil War - the responsibilities of the Presidency and the personal traumas suffered by the family - ending as the President realizes that it is time for him to leave for Ford's Theatre.  A short epilogue addresses the events of April 14, 1865 and the last years of Mary Lincoln's life.

 The program length is one hour; it is suitable for upper grade students (5th grade and up) and adults; and all performances are followed by a "question and answer" period with the President and Mrs. Lincoln - or with Max & Donna Daniels, who portray the historic couple.  This program has been called "an excellent opportunity to witness living history!"

 Registration is required for this free program. You may call the library at 217-826-2535, or use the online form.
