Republican Oratory: the Good Kind 

Actor Sam Waterston To Perform Famous Abraham Lincoln Speech
Wednesday, May 5, 2004, 6:30 p.m.
The Great Hall, 7 East 7th Street at 3rd Avenue
Free and open to the public

To celebrate the official publication of Harold Holzer's Lincoln at Cooper Union: The Speech that Made Abraham Lincoln President, award winning actor Sam Waterston will recreate the monumental speech that made Abraham Lincoln president in The Great Hall, where the address was originally delivered in 1860. The oration was an extraordinary historical and legal argument to halt the spread of slavery, transforming the backwoods orator overnight into a dignified statesman and legitimate presidential contender.
