622 Steinbach Nutcracker Abraham Lincoln
Lincoln (Limited Edition: 12.000)
The curtain went up, a person arose
from his seat and gave a rousing speech a proclamation, that
thrilled the people seated in the theatre. Abraham Lincoln, the 16th
President of the United States had spoken. All this I witnessed in
Disneyland in Los Angeles. A truly remarkable performance, and all the
while the nagging uncertainly of whether this was an actor or a machine!
Its something you really have to experience! Abraham Lincoln (1809
1865) came from a Quaker family, which immediately reminded me of
the free supply program sponsored by the Quakers that I was treated to
as a child.
Abraham Lincoln is regarded as the
actual founder of the American Republican party. He was extremely
popular; a folkhero already in his own lifetime, and he was an eloquent
speaker. During the short tenure of his presidency (1861 1865) some
of the most turbulent and sweeping changes in the history of the United
States took place. Chief among these was the secession of the
Confederacy of Southern States from the Union and the subsequent Civil
War which eventually led to the abolition of slavery and also final, to
the Reunification of the Nation.
Abraham Lincoln won over his
fellow-countrymen by virtue of his personal unpretentiouness and
simplicity. He maintained exemplary composure and displayed intuitive
vision and political perspicacity in dealing with outspoken as well as
furtive opposition. The noble principles he set forth in his
Proclamation on the battlefield of Gettysburg still apply today. Through
the act of a single disgruntled fanatic, upset about the outcome of the
Civil War, Abraham Lincoln was shot dead on April 1 5th, 1865. Let us
honor the memory of a great president.
