This year's program is a musical melodrama in which Abraham Lincoln overcomes adversities and obstacles by developing tried and true character traits to lead the Union to victory, thereby preserving the United States for future generations. Using actual events from Lincoln's life, we will watch as Lincoln faces hardships, moral dilemmas, and temptations as he attempts to hold the nation together and preserve its unity for future generations. Lincoln's high moral character demonstrating trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship will illustrate how he saves the country from becoming permanently divided.
