President Lincoln visits Williamsburg

Williamsburg Elementary third, fourth, and fifth grade students recently enjoyed a visit from President Abraham Lincoln.

Lincoln was portrayed by Stan Wernz. In 2006, Wernz won the “Best Lincoln of 2005” award from the Association of Lincoln Presenters (ALP). The children listened intently to our 16th President talk about his life. He spoke about his passion to eliminate slavery and conviction to fulfill the Declaration of Independence’s claim that “All men are created equal”.

This “living history” program was sponsored by the Williamsburg Harmony Hill Association.
