On February 10, 2011, the newly reconstituted Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Foundation will hold its first event. In addition to announcing the Foundation's board and mission, the introductory event will feature a special reading of Lincoln's words by actor and playwrite Stephen Lang, star of "Gods and Generals" and "Avatar."
The event will take place at the hotel where Abraham Lincoln and his family resided in the ten days immediately preceding his inauguration as President 150 years earlier in 1861.
