NECESSARY SACRIFICES by Richard Hellesen
FREDERICK DOUGLASS, 45-46. This is not the white-haired, full-bearded icon of his later years. Though his hair has begun to grey, perhaps with a faint stripe, he wears a goatee, and has the fierceness of his middle years.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN, 54-55. Not yet the haggard man in photographs at the end of his life, but the war is wearing on him. He has the inner vitality and strength of a younger man, but on the outside he has begun to look every one of his fifty-plus years-- especially in Act II, when he ages noticeably.

GEORGE STEARNS, 54-55. Major, and Assistant Adjutant General, United States Volunteers. The Recruiting Commissioner for the United States Colored Troops. In civilian life, a prosperous merchant from Boston and committed abolitionist.
