Presidents All

What a great event I was able to be part of on July 16 and 17.  The Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park celebrated its centennial that weekend.  Their goal was to have all the U.S. Presidents attend who had visited the Park.  They almost made it.  The William Howard Taft reenactor had to pull out at the last minute for health reasons.  FDR, however, did share the weekend with Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower and, of course, Abe himself.  Even Mark Twain, who had been instrumental in helping create the park, was there.  All the presidents repeated the speeches they had made there.  We were also able to greet the hundreds of visitors who attended over the weekend.  My thanks to Park Ranger Gary Ferguson and the rest of the Park staff.  It was a fantastic event and I was honored to be part of it.
