Jim Sayre of Lawrenceburg, KY will portray Abraham Lincoln at Giles House on Spout Springs Road , Knifley, KY on June 14, 2008 at 6:00pmCT.
Sayre, who has been studying and portraying the great president for several decades, has traveled throughout Kentucky giving presentations to school groups and to the general public.
Lincoln, who was recently named by a panel of historians as the most influential American who ever lived, always had Kentuckians around him. Even though Lincoln moved from Kentucky when only a child, he was surrounded by Kentuckians.
His law partner was from Greensburg; his best friend in Springfield, Illinois was from Louisville; his wife was from Lexington; Henry Clay was his political role model. November 16, 1863 at Gettysburg is the setting for Mr. Sayre's portrayal of Abraham Lincoln. The program is appropriate for students and general audiences.
Bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on. Bring a picnic supper early, at about 5:00pmCT/6:00pmET, and some friends with you to enjoy this very good program. The program is sponsored by Columbia Community Trust Bank, Kentucky Humanities Council, and The Giles Society.
There is no admission.
The Giles Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the literary and architectural heritage of Janice Holt Giles and Henry Giles and to offering educational and enrichment opportunities to all people of all ages.
Giles House is open to the public on Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 1 to 5pm, Central Time June through September.
