Mansfield Public Library will host “A Visit with Abraham Lincoln,” a living history presentation by Steve Wood, at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 29, at Temple Town Hall.

The program, free and open to the public, is funded by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities. The presentation will include the story of Lincoln’s visit to New Hampshire in 1860, after his Cooper Union Address in New York City, and his subsequent nomination and election to the presidency. After the program, Wood will step out of character and take questions from the audience.

Wood, from Claremont, has been speaking as Abraham Lincoln for historical societies, libraries, schools and community events throughout New England since 1995. He is retired, having worked for nearly 30 years with UNH Cooperative Extension as an extension educator in forest resources.
