From Gene Griessman: “I have known Dick Freeman for over a decade, and can attest to his deep knowledge of our 16th President Abraham Lincoln. He presents Lincoln’s life through the eyes of John M. Hay his personal secretary during the White House years. He also does a presentation on the Atlanta Campaign and the pivotal role it played in Lincoln’s re-election in 1864. These programs offer rich insights about Lincoln’s spiritual life and the faith that got him through the grueling war years.”

“As a theatre trained actress, when attending a theatrical production, particularly classical or historical pieces, it is essential for me to not only be entertained, but to be drawn into the subject’s world; otherwise boredom can set in rather quickly. Dick Freeman’s love and knowledge of all things Lincoln, fully engages the listener as they watch him portray the character of John Hay. As he recounts the life and times of Abraham Lincoln, one is moved to want to know much more than the “Emancipation Proclamation” tells us about this legend. Richard’s performance and adept knowledge will ignite any student’s curiosity – young or old.”
