Steve Wood

Steve Wood, NHSA, storytellerMatching Lincoln's height and beard, Steve Wood bears enough of a resemblance to our 16th president to make heads turn even when not wearing black trousers, vest, frock coat, and stovepipe hat.

His first-person historical interpretation, "A Visit with Abraham Lincoln," includes anecdotes from Lincoln's visit to NH, stories of his early life, campaign debates with Stephen Douglas, and the Civil War that followed his election to the Presidency.

Program content will vary with audience composition and the request of the hiring organization, but usually closes with a reading of the Gettysburg Address.

Steve has been featured in New Hampshire Magazine, on WMUR (NH) Chronicle, WCVB (Boston) Chronicle and New Hampshire Public Radio's Front Porch and The Exchange.

His presentation was broadcast over the Granite State Distance Learning Network in February of 2007. He was named as the Editor's Pick for "Best Lincoln Look-Alike" in New Hampshire Magazine's "Best of NH" issue in July 2002.
