Charles City Hall, Room 101

Honest – he’s not Abe, but he looks just like him.

The Morningside Civic Union is proud to announce that Mr. Stan De Haan will deliver Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address on November 19, 2013 — the 150th Anniversary, to the day, of that famous presidential oration, delivered in 1863 at the commemoration of the battlefield memorial — in Charles City Hall room 101 at 6:30 PM. The event is free, and the public is invited to attend.

The speaker will also provide commentary on Lincoln’s life and on the meaning of the Address in American history.

Mr. De Haan, of Newkirk, IA, began his Lincoln first person presentations in 1991 portraying Abraham Lincoln to school children, senior citizens, church groups, and patriotic gatherings.  He has won three national Lincoln look-alike contests and captures audiences with his striking resemblance and stirring message.
