Come and meet President Lincoln and his First Lady at this fun and interactive, drop-off program. Attendees will hear Mr. Lincoln reminisce about growing up in a log cabin, share the tale of how he got his beard, and why he wears such a tall hat. Mrs. Lincoln will explain why her dress stands out so wide from her waist.
After the talk, the children will have a pizza lunch with the "First Couple", have an opportunity to have their pictures taken with the President and First Lady, and enjoy a special craft.
Max and Donna Daniels of West Suburban Wheaton, Illinois, have been portraying Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln since 1988. They are popular attractions at Civil War reenactments throughout the Midwest and make over 200 appearances each year at metropolitan Chicago area schools.
