"As a young man, Lincoln worried that the 'field of glory' had been harvested by the founding fathers, that nothing had been left for his generation but modest ambitions. In the 1850s, however, the wheel of history turned. The rise of the slavery issue and the threatening dissolution of the nation itself provided Lincoln and his colleagues with an opportunity to save and improve the democracy established by Washington, Jefferson, and Adams, creating what Lincoln later called 'a new birth of freedom.' Without the march of events that led to the Civil War, Lincoln still would have been a good man, but most likely would never have been publicly recognized as a great man. It was history that gave him the opportunity to manifest his greatness, providing the stage that allowed him to shape and transform our national life."
The Summit County Republican party is proud to host a breakfast celebration in honor of Abraham Lincoln.
We are pleased to have special guest speaker Tim Price, an Army veteran. He served in both Desert Shield and Desert Storm, where he acquired PTSD. His therapist in New Orleans suggested that he come to Summit County for the programs offered by the National Ability Center. Tim came through a program in Summit County and 26 days later decided to move here permanently. He then volunteered for a year at the NAC and became a Recreational Therapy program instructor working to help other veterans recover.
