Library to host ‘Abraham Lincoln’


Staff report



GREENVILLE — Join “Abraham Lincoln” on Thursday, Feb. 16 at the Greenville Public Library. He will speak at two separate events and you are invited to attend one or both.

“Each event is ticketed so please pick up your free admission tickets at the Reference Desk,” said organizers. “All ages are welcome!”

“President Lincoln” will present “A Biography of Lincoln’s Life” at 4 p.m. and “Lincoln, Ohio, and the Civil War” at 6 p.m. Each talk will last 45 minutes with 15 minutes for questions and answers.”President Lincoln asks that you come prepared with questions,” the organizers said. “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. He has appeared all over the United States 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.
