the militia, a surveyor, a store owner, a state legislator, a US congressman,

Touching on most aspects of the life of the 16th President. It includes the famed

escape history. We will be remembered in spite of our selves.”
So said Mr. Abraham Lincoln. This performance goes over speeches and
much sage advise from the 16th president of the United States of America.
On February 12, 2010 at the St. George Pioneer Opera House Jay Beacham
presented his one man show Lincoln’s Ghost Returns.
In this presentation, Lincoln’s Ghost quotes from and reads from the political
speeches, including the 1838 speech, and from his political writings giving Lincoln’s
opinions on what makes for good government.
October of 2010, Ghost Tours in Santa Clara, Utah featured Lincoln’s Ghost.
He told about his experiences with deaths in his life, some of it in verse.
The 2011 show was a matinee on Feb, 12 at the St. George, Utah Pioneer Opera
house which was an expansion of the short five minutes Ghost Tours talk.
Thoughts on Life goes over some of Lincoln’s ancestry and the deaths of friends
and family members and others, and how these happenings affected him.
He wrote verse to express his feelings and recited the poetry of others to
express these feelings.
He also had fun with poetry.
One fine example is “The Wild Bear Chase” written by him.
Lincoln’s Ghost Tells Stories-2014 is an all new show featuring stories by the
16th President and how he used stories.
Sara Jane Lippincott said of Lincoln:
“I really think that Mr. Lincoln’s propensity for storytelling has been exaggerated by his enemies. I had once the honor of conversing with him, or rather of hearing him converse, for several minutes, and in all that time he only told four little stories.”
Carl Schurz, a Union general first met Lincoln on a train: ”I soon felt as if I had know him all my life and we had very long been close friends…He interspersed our conversation with all sorts of quaint stories, each of which had a witty point applicable to the subject at hand.”
Mr. Rutledge said, “Mr. Lincoln is a great storyteller…a rare political talent.”
Lincoln’s Ghost told wonderful stories on Feb. 22, 2014 at the Opera House in St. George, Utah.
