Re-election of President Abraham Lincoln
On Monday, September 17 at noon, Michael Krebs – as President Abraham Lincoln – presented his election speech for the highly successful exhibit “The Last Best Hope of Earth: Abraham Lincoln and the Promise of America”. The speech helped viewers to discover the words of Lincoln’s own re-election. A perfect speech to reach across time and reflect his words to our fragile existence today.
Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Speech
On Monday, September 17 at 6:00pm at the WVU Erickson Alumni Center (In the Grand Ballroom) Michael Krebs (as President Abraham Lincoln) and Debra Ann Miller (as Mary Todd Lincoln) presented Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Speech.
“With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan—to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.”
