Abraham Lincoln at the Library
President Lincoln will present “A Biography of Lincoln’s Life” at 4:00 p.m. and “Lincoln, Ohio, and the Civil War” at 6:00 p.m. Each talk will last 45 minutes with 15 minutes for Q&A. President Lincoln asks that you come prepared with questions! This is an opportunity to get behind the scenes during this fascinating time in history.
Lincoln impersonator John Cooper is a self-avowed history nut and considers Lincoln his favorite and our greatest President. He has portrayed President Lincoln for more than 25 years with the aid of his tall stature, Lincoln-styled beard and coat, and stovepipe hat. John has appeared all over the US and locally at the Darke County Fair and Trinity Wesleyan Church.
He says the hardest part of portraying Lincoln is not being able to speak about his assassination and what happened after his death. For more info please see his website www.fourscore7yearsago.com/lincoln.html. Refreshments will be served.
