Abraham Lincoln and the Fort Adams Trust present
A Tribute to the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln
Friday, April 17, 2015 from 7:00pm-9:00pm
Jane Pickens Theater, 49 Touro Street, Newport, RI

To finish the Civil War Sesquicentennial, please join us for a musical-theatrical commemoration in which we honor the valor and devotion of all soldiers who fought in this epic struggle which launched our country into a new era. You will witness scenes from my presidency, including the fateful meeting with my cabinet in September, 1862, when I announced the Emancipation Proclamation, and also the reading of the Gettysburg Address.
You will hear a 46-piece orchestra play period and other music selections including Variations on a Shaker Theme by Aaron Copland, selections from the films Gettysburg and Lincoln by John Williams, and America the Beautiful.
Yours, sincerely,
A. Lincoln
