Danny Russel as Abe Lincolon

An Abe Lincoln re-enactor, Danny Russel provided an entertaining and often moving presentation of Lincoln’s life. He cited specific important events, such as the death of two of his children, and his introduction to slavery. He ended with a moving recitation of the Gettysburg Address. The program was part of Chautauqua-Wawasee’s Patriot Days program honoring Independence Day. This presentation, along with a Patriotic Pops concert by Wagon Wheel Symphony of the Lakes was moved indoors to Wawasee High School’s auditorium due to rain. More than 300 local residents enjoined the two events.
