THE STORY: The play shows in a series of scenes the critical years of Lincoln's early manhood up to the moment of his election as president. We see the backwoodsman, a failure at shopkeeping, but a great favorite with friends and neighbors, slowly groping forward through the troubled years in Springfield, at last beginning to realize the great destiny before him.
Pulitzer Prize-winning play, and one of the most famous plays in American theatre.
