Cuyahoga Valley National Park is pleased to be one of sixteen cities hosting the National Park Service’s program commemorating the historic journey of Abraham Lincoln’s inaugural journey to the White House. The programming will feature acclaimed Lincoln actor Fritz Klein, who will present what Lincoln said in each community as he tried to reassure a nation on the verge of Civil War. The program will include National Park Service Park Rangers who will supplement Lincoln’s remarks with the story of Lincoln’s election, the turbulence that followed, and Lincoln’s steadfast commitment to the principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, despite threats to the nation and himself. The programs will also touch on how events of 150 years ago resonated through later generations up to and including today.
