Family tragedies, a desire for revenge, and the advice of a close friend will cause him to change his plans, setting young Abe Lincoln on the path toward the law and politics - but not before leaving behind someone very special to him. Robert L. Hecker's very well-liked and critically-praised musical features a full score of exciting songs and dances, guaranteeing to please kids of all ages! Leave the theatre with a smile, inspired by this true story of our greatest president in history.
