Lincoln Tales Tall and True

A Road Scholar Program by Brian (Fox) Ellis

Tracing his rise from Prairie State rail-splitter to America’s favorite president this blend of history and humor will attempt to disentangle the man from the myth. Told from the perspective of Austin Gollaher, a childhood friend of Lincoln who once saved his life, Brian &quotFox&quot Ellis steps into character to allow audiences to step back in time and meet Lincoln during many facets of life, including his childhood, his career as a lawyer, and his presidency.
