Abraham Lincoln…now he belongs to all ages! Young Abe “comes back” at the age of 19 and shares his story of overcoming challenges from childhood through his presidency. This journey through time teaches students about taking responsibility, honesty, and showing that one person, no matter what his/her background, can make a positive difference in the world and the community.
