Sometimes when I give a Lincoln performance, people ask that I recite the Gettysburg address. I tell them, some can recite it perfectly, that Lincoln wrote it and occasionally looked at his written speech while delivering it. Why must school children or I recite from memory if A. Lincoln himself did not?
I do give it in the 2009-the 200 year commemoration show. You can watch the 2009 Lincoln’s Ghost one man show for free at:
It’s in 5 parts with a short promo video.
Part one has had over 12,688 views on You Tube and sold over 400 copies on dvd format.
The 2010 show can be ordered on dvd shown here:
Later in 2010, Lincoln’s Ghost appeared at the annual Ghost Walk in Santa Clara, Utah in the month of October.
A promo for the 2011 show can be seen at:

What happened in 2012? Well besides appearing in schools and for small groups, Lincoln’s Ghost was a feature at the Washington County(Utah) Fair where people could get their photos taken with old Abe. (See The Photo)
A fun site to check out is:
Here’s a funny story a friend related today. He said he bought a copy of the book about the Lincoln Presidency, “Team of Rivals”, for $2.00 at a thrift store. Then the Spielberg movie came out and he found the same book at Barnes and Nobel for $30.00. He could understand why, as the movie had little in common with the book, but suspected that the book may be looked at by the publisher as being more valuable now that the movie is out.
Books from Amazon:
“Team of Rivals”. It appears at the far left and to it’s right is a box that says “Amazon.com Shop and Save”. Click on the “Team of Rivals”box and Uncle Sam’s your Uncle, you’ll be taken to where you can order it for as little as $10.35.
And many more.
Order some today.
